Recipe: Roasted Roots with Herbs

Here’s a great autumn comfort food.

Start to finish: 1 hour

Servings: 4 (as a side dish)


  • 3 russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 yams or sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 4 medium golden beets, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 fennel bulb, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and cut on the bias into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • salt and cracked pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine all ingredients in large bowl until well-coated with oil. Spread veggies in a shallow baking dish, and cover with foil. Roast at 375 F for 30 to 40 minutes or until soft, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.

Never thought to put beets and fennel in this type of recipe. I usually put turnips and rutabagas in with the potatoes and carrots. Thanks for the idea.
