Roasted Winter Vegetables for Christmas Dinner

In the winter, sometimes I go to the grocery store and don't want to buy any fruits and veggies.  Everything is brown, wilted, and way out of season.  But, I still want to have lots of veggies in our diet.  One way I've done this is cooking more root vegetables, which are delicious even in the winter.   This would be a perfect side dish for Christmas dinner, right next to the turkey and gravy, yummm!

What you need:
  • 1 medium sweet potato, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 carrots, cut into 1/2 inch thick rounds
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
Let's get cooking:
Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl.  Lightly spray an 8 x 8 glass dish with cooking spray, then pour in the veggies.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 35 minutes, or until the veggies are soft.
That's it--simple, seasonal roasted veggies for dinner!
