I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking to switch up my traditional Thanksgiving sides each year, and these roasted root vegetables are the perfect side dish for anything you’re planning to make this Holiday season.  These root vegetables are roasted with warming cumin, and are accompanied by a zingy curry horseradish yogurt dipping sauce- they really add to any main dish.  These are incredibly easy to make & can even be served as an appetizer or dinner on their own!


You’re going to start off by prepping all of your vegetables.  Wash everything really well (since we are using root vegetables), and roughly chop / halve everything except the pearl onions & garlic cloves (but make sure to peel those).  Add them to a large mixing bowl with your olive oil, pink salt, black pepper, garlic granules, onion granules, cumin, and smoked paprika.  Toss well to combine, and then transfer them to a large baking sheet (you can use two if needed as well) in a single layer.  Place them into a preheated 450F oven for anywhere between 30-50 minutes.  This will all depend on how large or small you chop your vegetables, but you want them to be caramelized and fork tender.  Make sure to flip your vegetables every 15-20 minutes as well to prevent burning.

Once your vegetables are done roasting, let them cool for about 5 minutes & then transfer back into a large mixing bowl.  Add your lemon juice & fresh minced parsley to the bowl, and mix until well combined.

The yogurt sauce is also very easy to make!  Simply mix together your plain unsweetened almond milk yogurt, curry powder, pink salt, lemon juice, and prepared horseradish.  Just keep this in the fridge until ready to use!

And that’s it!  Like I said, these are so easy to make & really are the perfect fall meal or side dish.  This is a super versatile recipe too, and you can sub out any of the vegetables for really anything you want… and that yogurt dipping sauce is great put on ANYTHING.  Burgers, sandwiches, served with toasted pita bread or raw veggies as a dip, mixed in with cold pasta & veggies for a pasta salad- really anything!
