Easy roasted root vegetables are a perfect side for fall.
The recipe is completely flexible. You can include whatever root vegetables you have — sweet potatoes, celery root, carrots, parsnips, turnips, beets. It also works with winter squash. The only essential ingredients are cooking fat, salt, and pepper. But, of course, you can always include other flavorings like onions, garlic, herbs and spices.
The cooking temperature is very forgiving. If you have something else in the oven at a different temperature, you can roast the vegetables anywhere between 350 and 450 degrees. Just adjust the cooking time.
