1 tablespoon canola oil or olive oil

½ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

4 cups raw root vegetables of your choice, diced*

*If cooking different kinds of vegetables together, make sure to cut the harder vegetables like carrots, parsnips, and beets smaller than softer vegetables like turnips and sweet potatoes so that all of the vegetables get done about the same time.

Tools and equipment:
knife, cutting board, peeler, roasting pan or sheet pan, spoon, spatula, mixing bowl.

*Additions and substitutions:
Root vegetables could include: parsnips, carrots, turnips, beets, sweet potatoes, other potatoes, leeks or other onion. Could also include apples or winter squashes even though they are not root vegetables. For extra flavor, try adding grated lemon or lime zest, different types of vinegars, chili flakes, chili powder, curry powder, or other fresh or dried herbs or spices. Roasted vegetables are very versatile!
