I absolutely adore roasted vegetables. While I am a huge veggie fan all around, I find that roasting really brings out the flavor of certain veggies, with our root vegetable friends being at the top of the list.
Every year, I can’t wait until Fall comes. I enjoy Spring, tolerate Summer, but ADORE Fall. I also like Winter, but if I had to choose a season to stay year-round, it would hand down be Fall.
The crisp air that holds a clean, fresh smell that comes with the change of the seasons. The gorgeous Fall colors. The cool breezes. Temperatures that are just right for sitting out on the patio with a hot cup of golden milk hot chocolate.
Yes, I am a Fall lover, through and through. And guess what?! As we share this recipe, Fall is in full swing and I couldn’t be happier. I also knew it would be the perfect time to share a super easy roasted vegetable side dish with you guys.
Another reason that Fall makes me happy is because of the abundance of some of my favorite foods available fresh and locally at the farmer’s market and my grocery stores. The summer harvest is drawing to a close and an abundance of root vegetables and cooler weather produce are hitting the shelves and bins for us to enjoy.
I find the smells and tastes of squashes and warm spices so comforting during this time of year. One of my favorite ways to enjoy the Fall harvest is with simple preparations such as roasting.
This recipe couldn’t be simpler or more delicious. It’s the perfect side dish for any meal and it makes excellent leftovers, so make extra and enjoy it with breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner!
