In our humble opinion, roasted vegetables are the perfect side dish for any winter meal. Here, nine delicious flavor combinations to mix up your veggie routine. Remember to always coat with EVOO liberally, and don’t skip a little salt and pepper when you season.


Acorn Squash + coconut oil + curry powder + brown sugar

Slice the winter squash, sprinkle it with seasoning and roast it skin side down for 40 minutes to an hour at 375°F until tender.


Carrots + honey + maple syrup + parsley + thyme

Carrots sweeten naturally when roasted, but with a touch of honey and maple syrup, you might think you're eating dessert. (Roast for about 40 minutes on 375°F.)


Asparagus + garlic + lemon + Parmesan

Roast the spears for about 10 minutes at 400°F, then add the Parmesan garnish. Don't all greens taste better when baked with a layer of cheese?


Butternut squash + honey + sage + rosemary

Roast the squash for 30 to 45 minutes at 400°F until tender. Then eat it on its own, blend it into a soup or add it to a dish like risotto or pizza.
