The easiest and tastiest roasted root vegetable dish, even the pickiest of eaters will enjoy. When I was preparing this dish, it was to compliment my Thanksgiving inspired meal prep. There is something about fresh herbs that just turns a dish from average to exceptional. If you haven’t tried adding fresh herbs to your roasted vegetables, I definitely think it is time you tried.

These roasted root vegetables remind me of the flavor of stuffing minus the bread, so if you are looking for a low carb, plant based stuffing alternative for your Thanksgiving meal, try these out. These are super simple to prepare and only take around 30 minutes to get done. While these are cooking you can go about prepping other items to compliment this side dish.

What you will need for these roasted root vegetables include:

  1. Rainbow carrots
  2. Parsnips
  3. Mushrooms
  4. Pearl onions
  5. Fresh Thyme
  6. Avocado oil
  7. Salt and Pepper to taste

Add all your ingredients to a baking dish lined with parchment paper and mix with your hands to make sure all veggies are seasoned with the thyme, salt and pepper, and avocado oil. Then you will bake 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes. If you want them extra crispy you can broil for a few minutes.
