Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, and celery root make up a colorful roasted vegetable medley. If you can't find celery root (also called celeriac) you can swap in another root vegetable such as carrots, parsnips, or turnips.

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1½ pounds butternut squash (about 1 medium), peeled, seeded, and cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 pound celery root (celeriac; about 1 large), peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, halved
  • 4 shallots, cut into wedges
  • 1 lemon, quartered and seeded


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Set racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 425°F. Coat 2 large rimmed baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk oil, honey, garlic, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add squash, celery root, Brussels sprouts, shallots, and lemon; toss to coat. Divide the vegetables between the prepared pans.
  3. Roast until tender and charred, rotating the pans and stirring the vegetables halfway through, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool slightly, then squeeze the roasted lemons over the vegetables.
  • Tip: Look for cubed butternut squash at the store for less prep work.
  • To make ahead: Prep vegetables and make dressing; cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. When ready to cook, toss the vegetables with the dressing and roast as directed in Step 3.

It was fine, but it was just...roasted vegetables. They would be great as a side dish, but would not stand alone. I served it with bread for dinner and it was lacking. I used turnips in place of the celery root.
