Roasted vegetables are a delicious side dish. You can mix up a wide variety of vegetables for roasting and use different herbs and spices to flavor them. Roasting intensifies the sweetness of the vegetables and caramelizes the outside. This recipe celery root, red potatoes with the skin on, sweet carrots, shallots, garlic and Brussels sprouts. Each provides a unique texture, flavor and color. Dress them with the vinaigrette right out of the oven so the vegetables soak up the flavors of the lemon and herbs.

Root vegetables take a good hour to cook at a relatively high temperature. Add vegetables, such as Brussels sprouts, later otherwise they’re overdone and mushy. The Brussels sprouts I purchased were quite large and took 15 minutes to cook. Adjust time for smaller ones.
Roast for 45 minutes. Add the Brussels sprouts and roast for another 15 minutes.
Remove the thyme stems and toss with the lemon-herb vinaigrette.
