Healthy Roasted Vegetables

This colorful mix of vegetables makes an ideal accompaniment to chicken, beef fish, or pork, given the roasting brings out the natural sweetness and intense flavors of vegetables. They’re a perfect side dish throughout the whole year but there’s just something comforting about having a big dish full of roasted vegetables during the holiday season.

Another bonus: Roasting the vegetables all in one baking sheet saves on cleanup, too, which is always a big plus when you’re making a big dinner.
