Fall recipe: roasted vegetables

While it may not have felt like fall at all the last few days, the first day of fall was actually last week. And in the spirit and anticipation of fall-like weather (along with keeping my tradition of posting seasonally themed recipes), I am bringing you a delicious, and healthy, fall themed recipe.

The fresh vegetables of fall are definitely one of the greatest parts of this season, so I say we all take advantage of the in-season produce. Make sure you are picking up your ingredients at a local farmer’s market, I picked up a haul of fresh produce at the farmers market held on campus last week. It is the easiest way to ensure you are getting quality, healthy, delicious ingredients. And, the best part about this recipe is that it has a really short prep time, giving you plenty of time to still enjoy the crisp weather of the season while you wait for your vegetables to cook.

What you need:

1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed

½ pound of butternut squash, peeled and cubed

10 baby potatoes, sliced in half

½ pound green beans

3 medium sized carrots, peeled and halved

8 ounce package baby bella mushrooms

½ red onion, cut in wedges

1 head garlic, peeled

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 tbsp italian seasoning

2 tsp salt

Freshly cracked pepper, to taste

Fresh thyme, to taste

Now for the preparation, preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Place all of your prepared vegetables onto a large baking sheet, toss the vegetables with the vinegar, olive oil, and seasonings. Then, bake for 45 to 50 minutes.

This recipe is so quick, and is easily customizable. I have sweet peppers sitting around that I am planning to throw in the next time I make this recipe. So, have some fun with this recipe and use it to dive head first into fall like I am planning to do, after all it is my favorite season! Hope you enjoy, and be sure to share pictures of your completed recipe with us!
