Roasted Root Veggies

Roasted Root Veggies

A blend of potato wedges, carrots, and onion strips, tossed with seasonings and oven-roasted to perfection!


6-8 servings


1 1/2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes (about 5 medium)
1 1/2 pounds carrots (about 6 medium)
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic*
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup oil


1. Wash potatoes and cut into wedges. Wash or peel carrots, and cut into strips (about 2-3 inches long). Cut onion into wedges or strips or thick slices.**

2. In a large bowl, toss together the prepared veggies with the garlic, salt, pepper, and oil. Spread in a single layer on two greased 11x15-inch baking sheets.

3. Bake in preheated 425 degree oven for 15 minutes. Stir (or turn) and bake for 15 minutes longer, or until golden on the outside and soft inside. Serve hot!

These roasted veggies go great with a main course of grilled meat, roasted chicken, or burgers.

Tammy's Review: 

I love these roasted root veggies! The carrots are pleasantly sweet, and Yukon Gold potato wedges are the BEST! (You can use other kinds of potatoes in this recipe, but it won't be quite as delicious!) This is one of my favorite wintertime standbys, and it's super easy to make, too. :)

With everyone.I will be making these a lot more this winter.The kids had second and thirds yeah!Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe.


I love your family-friendly recipes! This one reminds me of how people feel about Dave Ramsey's advice-- why didn't I think of that and why haven't I been making this before. ;)

I served the Roasted Root Veggies with Sloppy Joes ( I threw in about a 1 1/2 cups of finely shredded cabbage in the hamburger meat as it was getting done and steamed it a bit before I put the sloppy joe sauce in; so i got in a "hidden" veggie). I was going to serve green beans too, but I peeled all the veggies and ran out of time. :l My dear husband complemented me on the supper. He said, "Umm, this is good."

RR Veggies seem to me to be a very good transition from fried. You still get some yummy grease :) and the veggies get crisp on the outside while soft and good on the inside.


Carrots are probably the cheapest fresh vegetable at Costco, and this is one of my favorite ways to use them!
