This recipe for roasted winter vegetables is a perfect side dish for roasted meats or poultry.

  • 5 medium carrots, peeled

  • 1 medium celery root, peeled, or 5 stalks celery, trimmed

  • 2 medium turnips, peeled

  • 2 medium parsnips, peeled

  • 6 small new potatoes, peeled

  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and seeded

  • 8 to 10 small shallots 

  • 1 bulb garlic, cloves separated and peeled

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 1 medium bunch fresh thyme or rosemary

  • Kosher salt, to taste

  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Steps to Make It

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 375 F.

  2. Pull the little leaves off of the fresh herb stems until you have about a tablespoon of them. Set them aside along with another few whole sprigs of the herbs.

  3. Cut the carrots, turnips, parsnips, potatoes, squash, and celery (or celery root) into about 1-inch pieces. Cutting the vegetables the same size helps ensure they cook evenly.

  4. Transfer the cut vegetables, along with the shallots and garlic, to a large baking pan. Drizzle with olive oil, season with kosher salt and black pepper, sprinkle with the herb leaves and toss to combine. Place the whole herb sprigs in the pan with the veggies.

  5. Roast for 45 minutes or until the vegetables are lightly browned and tender but not too soft.

  6. Remove the whole herb sprigs from the pan and let the vegetables cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.


  • You can use any waxy potato or even Yukon Golds, which are sort of midway between starchy and waxy. If you use red potatoes, don't peel them before cutting them up.
