Quick-Roasting Winter Vegetables

  • Active Time 44m

Servings vary

ingredients

  • 1 pound or more vegetable of choice (sliced as described in chart below)
  • About 2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil (see chart)
  • About 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (see chart)
  • About 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, oregano, or sage (roughly chopped) or rosemary (finely chopped)

directions

Heat the oven to 450 degrees F. Combine the sliced vegetables, oil, salt and herbs in a bowl. Toss to coat thoroughly. Arrange the vegetables in a single layer without crowding on a large parchment- or foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Roast until soft on the inside (test with the tip of a knife or a wooden skewer) and browned on the outside (check the bottoms). If you like, flip the vegetables halfway through cooking. Serve warm or at room temperature, or with dressings.
