Easy Roasted Root Vegetables with Mrs. Dash

The best thing about using Mrs. Dash is that it’s so easy to make everyday dishes something special. For example, one of my favorite, easy-to-make side dishes in the winter or spring is roasted root vegetables. You can use leeks, potatoes, yams, sweet potatoes, onions, mushrooms, turnips, carrots, and garlic - any combination will do. You can add some non-root vegetables like celery, broccoli, eggplant or cauliflower, too. Almost any vegetable is even better roasted.

Have you seen the new root vegetables in the grocery stores like purple potatoes, yellow beets, or purple yams? Experiment! The more colorful your roasted vegetables the tastier and better for you.

Usually, I season my roasted vegetables with herbs de provence and salt and pepper. However, using Mrs. Dash seasoning blends like Garlic & Herb or Onion & Herb is even better. No extra sodium to worry about. No need to measure either - just sprinkle it on.

I love roasted vegetables either hot or cold. Make enough to have leftovers so you can have a cold roasted vegetable salad for lunch the next day! You can serve them plain or with a little vinaigrette.

Easy Roasted Root Vegetables

Ingredients

  • A variety of root vegetables and other vegetables of your choosing
  • Olive or grapeseed oil
  • Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb, Mrs. Dash Onion & Herb or both

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Wash your vegetables. Peel if necessary and chop into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Place vegetables in a baking dish. I usually used enough vegetables to fill two 3-quart rectangular glass baking dishes to the top. The roasted vegetables will “cook down” so don’t worry about filling your baking dish fully.
  4. Drizzle vegetables with either olive oil or grapeseed oil. Both oils are good for high temperature cooking. However, grapeseed oil doesn’t have much taste to it. So you’ll only taste the vegetables and the Mrs. Dash seasonings.
  5. Season to taste with Mrs. Dash seasoning blend of your choice.
  6. Toss to coat vegetables.
  7. Place in oven and cook your root vegetable mix for 20 minutes.
  8. Stir vegetables.
  9. Test to see if they’re done by poking them with a knife or fork. They should be tender, but not mushy and should begin to brown.
  10. If the vegetables aren’t done, cook for another 10 to 15 minutes. Stir then check to see if the vegetables are cooked through.
  11. Repeat until vegetables start to turn golden and tender. This could be 40 minutes to an hour depending on the amount you're making.
  12. Serve hot as a side dish or cool down and serve as a roasted vegetable salad.

    Is there anything better than a roasted veggie?! I have never used Mrs. Dash before, but it sounds like I should start :) We met back at the ICBN event in NYC earlier this year. Just thought I would stop by, say hi and check out some of your fab recipes! Also, I just added you to the Better Recipes blogroll. Hope all is well!

    Hi there! I’m trying to get through as many Fitbloggin’ attendees’ blogs (did I type that right) as possible before Wed b/c I have a) am nervous and this helps me to feel better and b) apparently have no life. :-) Anyway just wanted to say high and hope we meet at Fitbloggin’. :-)

    PS Purple potatoes make me happy. In fact, almost anything purple makes me happy…except for Grimace. Scary.

    I have seen the various colored root vegetables and love the purple varieties. They often come in my csa, and are so much fun to cook with. What an easy way to add color to a dish! I’ll have to pick up Mrs. Dash. I’m always watching my sodium.
