This Roasted Root Vegetables with Thyme recipe is very rich in flavor. The fresh herbs thyme and parsley really take this dish to another level. Enjoy!
Today, I just want to pop in for a minute and share this delicious dish with you guys. This Roasted Root Vegetables with Thyme is so fast to prepare and it is as easy to make as my baked sweet potato recipe. The beauty of this dish is that you can choose whatever root vegetable you prefer to roast. I personally love to roast carrots, beets, and onions because when they are roasted, they bring out the natural sweetness and flavors. Also, this dish doesn’t have a lot of fat and calories, but it is still tasty and packed full of nutrients.
Before we go to the recipe, let me give you some tips to make this even more delicious.
- One important thing to do when you roast vegetables is to cut them into roughly the same size. The reason why I am saying that it is because you want all of the roots to cook at the same time. If you cut some in small pieces and others in bigger sizes, the smaller will cook faster than others and they will probably become soggy by the time the bigger pieces are ready.
- Another important tip is to add the vegetables in a single layer to the baking sheet like I did with the kale chips recipe to avoid they become mash.
- And finally, toss the cut vegetables with olive oil, but make sure the pieces are coated on all sides because if not, the sides that are not coated will be very dry.
So, you will know your root vegetables are done roasting when they turn golden brown and the outside edges are almost crisp.
