Roasted Harvest Vegetables
Oven Roasted Vegetables with nutmeg and sage make a marvelous addition to any meal, and the possibilities are endless!
We eat roasted veggies from the moment I feel the first nip in the air, until spring.

Literally, all through the cool months I serve oven roasted vegetables at least once a week. It’s so satisfying to chop seasonal veggies into chunks and throw them in the oven, knowing a bright, flavorful, and healthful dish will follow.
In the past I have always done this with just a drizzle of olive oil and a hefty sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Yet a few days ago I found a recipe for oven roasted vegetables on McCormick.com and thought I’d share it with you for this week’s “Seasonal Seven.”
As mentioned last week, through the holidays I will share different recipes that feature the seven flavors that McCormick Spices feels capture the essence of the holiday season: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, sage, vanilla, peppermint and poultry seasoning.
This oven roasted vegetables recipe includes two of these wonderful seasonings, nutmeg and sage.
Nutmeg and sage are two of my favorite fall flavors. They truly enhance the natural taste of the vegetables and give them a rustic fall quality.
The official McCormick recipe calls for 8 cups of any combination of assorted vegetables. I chose to use brussels sprouts, butternut squash, and red onion because I love the color and textural diversity.
Have fun throwing in any veggie you love best, but don’t forget the nutmeg and sage.
BIG flavor boost!
And don’t forget the health benefits of roasted veggies either…
