Roasted Autumnal Veggies


  • 1 lb. butternut squash, cubed  into bite-sized 1” pieces
  • 1 lb. yams, peeled and cubed into bite-sized 1” pieces
  • 1 large head cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florettes
  • 1 lb. Brussels sprouts, halved
  • 1 lb. green beans, trimmed and blanched for 2-3 minutes, drained
  • 1 lb.  mini assorted peppers
  • 1 large red onion, peeled and thinly sliced


  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 T. kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 T. herbs de Provence
  • Fresh rosemary sprigs for garnish


For ease on the cooking day of dinner, have all 7 of the vegetables cut and put into separate canisters or individual zip lock bags the day before.

Day of dinner: spread a sheet of parchment paper on a large baking pan.  Place vegetables in separate rows on pan, so you ‘ll have 7 individual arrays of vegetables.  Mix the oil, salt, pepper and herbs in a bowl.  Drizzle over all the vegetables.

Heat oven to 425o, “roast” setting if you have one.

Place on middle rack of oven and roast for 20-25 minutes until all are tender and lightly browned.

To serve, place each variety of vegetable on a large oblong serving dish, garnish with rosemary and serve!  Serves 6-8.
