Roasted Root Vegetables

Serves 4-6

Prep Time: 10-15 minutes

Bake Time: 60-70 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour 15-25 minutes

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.

  2. Chop the onion in half. Then cut each half into ~5 wedges. Break the wedges up a bit and place them in a large baking dish. I use a 9X13 glass roasting pan for this recipe.

  3. Peel the carrots and discard the ends. My Rada vegetable peeler works great for this recipe. Chop the carrots into ~1/2-inch chunks and add them to the baking dish.

  4. Scrub the potatoes and peel off any bad spots. Chop the potatoes into ~1/2-inch chunks and add them to the baking dish.

  5. Scrub the sweet potato and peel off any bad spots. Chop the sweet potato into ~3/4-inch chunks and add it to the baking dish.

  6. Season the vegetables with plenty of salt and pepper. I use ~2&1/2 tsp salt for this recipe.

  7. Mince the fresh rosemary. Sprinkle it onto the veggies.

  8. Add the coconut oil and butter to the baking dish. If your coconut oil and/or butter are cold and hard, chop into bits before adding to the baking dish. Stir it all together with a large spoon.

  9. Bake the vegetables at 375 F for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and fold everything over once to make sure the oil is well-coating all of the veggies. Return the veggies to the oven and bake 20-30 more minutes. Check to make sure the vegetables are cooked to your liking by piercing the potatoes and carrots with a fork.

  10. Remove from the oven, allow to cool a bit, and serve!
