"A casserole dish of seasonal vegetables that is so easy to prepare. It can be made a day ahead - just reheat before serving. Lemon juice can be substituted for balsamic vinegar, and you can use baking potatoes if you don't have any Yukon Golds on hand." — Saundra

Easy & so good! I didn't have any winter squash, but I added baby carrots &
sliced zucchini. One thing I did different, I put the root vegetables (onion,
potatoes & carrots) in one bowl & the more delicate vegetables (peppers &
zucchini) in another bowl, they I divided the oil/vinegar/herb mixture between
the two bowls. I put the root vegetables in the oven first & let them roast for 30
minutes before adding the other vegetables at the last 10 or 15 minutes. That
way they stayed bright colored & didn't get mushy. I took them to a potluck dinner
& there wasn't a single bite leftover. Great, healthy recipe!
Just so everyone knows, the only way to make this recipe and have it turn out well is to use FRESH ROSEMARY AND THYME! I made the mistake thinking that it wouldn't be a big deal using dried...but I was wrong. I've read so many good things about this recipe to only have it turn out pretty bad. The dried thyme overpowered the taste of the dish. I may make this again (using fresh spices) but I still have a bad taste in my mouth from the veggies I just made. Either way, it was a learning experience!
This recipe was SO good! I really had never found a good way to roast vegetables that didn't sound complicated (put this veggie in, take this one out, lower the temp, put the oven on broil, stir every 3 minutes...), until now! I took this dish to my brother's house, and they wanted to keep all the leftovers! The only thing I did differently was to omit butternut squash, and up the ratio of balsamic vinegar to olive oil. Oh, I also used salt and pepper in the dressing. I used 1 large red onion, 1 sweet potato, 3 new potatoes, half a bag of baby carrots, grape tomatoes, crimini mushrooms, red bell peppers, zucchini, and I used dried rosemary, thyme and basil (I already had dried) for the seasonings. I did the root vegetables on one foil-lined baking pan, and the more delicate veggies on another pan. I found mine burned after about 15 minutes at 475, so I lowered the temp. to 450 and just cooked longer. With the addition of the time in the oven at 475, the root vegetables took about 45-50 minutes, and the other veggies took about 25-30, stirring both.
This recipe tasted SO good, though, and I have gotten requests to make it for holidays and other family gatherings. Thanks for sharing it!
Really good, healthy dish. The only problem I had was the potato's took a long time to cook, while everything else was done. By the time the potato's were soft enough, the other veggi's were a little too soft. Next time I'll cut the potato's smaller than everything else and that will probably solve the problem.
Yum! You can use almost any kind of vege in this dish except delicate veges that will fall apart easily. I tossed all the veges, vinegar and spices in a bag before roasting. Tend to dry out so I cover the pan for the first half of cooking and then leave it exposed for the 2nd half to get the nice brown color.
FANTASTIC! What a wonderful way to bring out the vibrant colors, and flavor of vegetables; such a versatile recipe. I forwent the sweet potatoes and squash, and don't care for rosemary so omitted those. Used red potatoes w/skins instead of yukons, and added some fresh broccoli. The broccoli was to die for roasted! I kept all measurements the same except had to add a bit more EVOO. I added some garlic powder(was afraid to add garlic cloves for fear of burning and becoming bitter) and added 1 tsp. basil, 1 tsp. dried crushed thyme. (didn't have fresh) Fresh cracked pepper and salt at the end. This is just perfect. Did it in big roaster pan and just loosely covered w/foil and turned every 10 minutes as stated for the 35 and they still browned while I think that bit of foil just loosely laid overtop helped them 'steam' a bit and no veggie was too crunchy or mushy. Served w/oven-broiled lamb and baguettes and it was a complete meal.
We loved this. Substituted carrots for the squash and reduced the oil just a bit. Started the potatoes about 10 minutes before the other vegetables, then cooked the 35 minutes. Just a hint: mix the oil, vinegar, herbs and spices _before_ you start chopping and the flavors blend a little and the rosemary softens.
We will definitely make this often. Thanks, Saundra.
This is definitely a great veggie side dish! I made it for a dinner party and it was a hit! You can't go wrong if you follow all the instructions exactly. Using a shallow roasting pan is a must, along with frequent stirring. I'd also like to add that spraying the roasting pan with a non-stick spray prevents all the sticking that happens in the later stages of cooking.
