Roasted Root Vegetables
The nutritional content of recipes is calculated by a registered dietitian. Because ingredients and measurements may vary, the values we give are close approximations.
stepsYogurt Dipping Sauce:
- Combine all ingredients in a small bowl./li>
- Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use, up to 1 day.
- Scrub the skins with a brush, but leave them on to retain all the nutrients.
- Cut veggies into chunks of similar size so they cook uniformly. Avoid steaming the vegetables as they cook by spreading them in a single layer on a baking sheet, starchy vegetables on one sheet, non-starchy vegetables on a separate sheet.
- Experiment with herbs for flavor. Use 3 tablespoons of fresh herbs, or use dried herbs to taste.
- Roast, uncovered in a 425°f oven. Start checking for doneness at about 15 minutes then flip the veggies and brown the other side. Total time depends on the size of the vegetable chunks.
