A family favorite at this time of year, the high oven temperature caramelizes the outside of the vegetables and leaves the inside tender and moist.
You can add other seasonal vegetables, such as butternut squash, beets and cauliflower.
Vegetables are high in fiber, antioxidants, phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. and position a rack in the center of the oven.
On a baking sheet, toss the sweet potatoes, carrots, brussel sprouts, red bliss potatoes, parsnips and garlic cloves with the olive oil, herbs and spices. Roast, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and golden brown, about 30 to 40 minutes.
