Garlic-Butter Roasted Veggies

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 40-50 minutes
Yield: 5 servings

2 medium turnips, peeled and chopped into 1-inch pieces
2-3 medium carrots, peeled and chopped into 1-inch piece
2 medium potatoes, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
one small white onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill

Combine veggies in a baking dish and spread out evenly. Toss with olive oil and garlic and add butter to pan. Sprinkle herbs over vegetables.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until veggies are tender. Stir occasionally to coat with olive oil and butter. Add additional olive oil if mixture seems too dry.

Tips and Tricks
I used red potatoes, because the thinner skin means I didn't have to peel them. Omit or add additional vegetables to meet your families tastes.
Make It Healthier
Use unsalted butter or trans-fat free spread.
How Kids Can Help
Older kids can peel the carrots and turnips. Younger kids can sprinkle the herbs.
