Ingredients for Roasted Beets and Butternut Squash
- Beets: Red beets are perfect for this recipe, they add a great pop of color. You could use yellow beets, but your roasted vegetables won’t be as colorful.
- Butternut Squash: Adds a touch of sweetness to this recipe, you could also use delicata or acorn squash.
- Red Onion and Garlic: Really adds savory taste to these autumn vegetables!
- Fennel: Don’t knock fennel before you try it roasted! It really brings out the sweeter side of this unique vegetable.
- Olive Oil: Just a small amount so your vegetables don’t end up shriveled.
- Herbs de Provence: This herb blend contains thyme, basil, rosemary, tarragon, savory, marjoram, oregano, and bay leaf – it’s amazing for fall and winter dishes if you have not tried it yet, get some now!

How to Make Autumn Roasted Vegetables
Really it couldn’t be easier to make these roasted vegetables!
- Cut and chop your vegetables – really go for uniform sized pieces for your squash and beets.
- Place butternut squash in a bowl first and toss with olive oil and herbs. Place on the prepared pan.
- Place your thinly sliced fennel and onion next to the squash in the pan. Place chopped beets in a bowl, toss with remaining olive oil, herbs de provence and salt. Pro tip: Toss your squash first in the bowl, then beets or your squash will be stained pink. Transfer beets to the prepared pan.
- Roast for 50-60 minutes until tender. Stir halfway through.
Tips for Best Oven Roasted Vegetables Results
- Don’t toss your vegetables all together in one bowl – the beets will stain the other vegetables!
- Don’t cover your vegetables while they roasted, this will make them soggy
- Want extra crispy oven roasted vegetables? Add cornstarch when tossing them.
- Use a flavored olive oil to really ramp up the flavor
I love to serve these vegetables in a bowl atop kale with some roasted roasted butter beans and some fresh avocado slices!
