Roasted Root Vegetables on Bed of Greens

Can you guess what vegetables are roasted in this dish?”  That was the question presented to the kids by Oliver when we went over to Jo and Oliver’s place for dinner a while back. It’s not fair to ask that question of you as you had to smell the aroma of these roasted veggies to guess. Absolutely delicious these veggies were!



Here is the answer: Parsnips, routabague, carrots, celery root, radish, potatoes, onions and leeks 😋.  Super delicious, fragrant and healthy!



Roasted vegetables are ALWAYS a big hit at our home. In fact, I usually have to double or triple the recipe as all of us if there was enough will have roasted vegetables as our main meal. So for our Thanksgiving dinner I went back into my email archives to find the one that Oliver sent me with the recipe for his outstanding roasted veggies, and here it is Roasted root vegetables with rosemary on This recipe couldn’t be any easier for the most delicious roasted veggies ever! And you know what makes this the best roasted veggies?  Ten cloves of garlic are in this dish!  You can’t go wrong with garlic in anything!


When we made our roasted root vegetables for Thanksgiving dinner this year we wanted to have a salad of sorts so we decided to serve our roasted veggies on a bed of arugula greens tossed in a mustard vinaigrette. The mustardy arugula salad along with roasted root veggies turned out to be a fabulous combination 😋👌! Give this recipe a try!

    1. Thank you Mackenzie!! We cut our veggies a little thinner so they would cook through all the way, even then roasting veggies do take a loooong time 😀 but it is worth the wait!
