“This easy roasted butternut squash and root vegetables recipe is incredibly versatile. Pile the squash and veggies onto grain bowls, add to sandwiches, toss in soup, serve as a side dish—you name it. Roasting vegetables in the oven gives you 20 minutes of hands-off cooking time to assemble the rest of your meal.”


    • 3 cups butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 1 cup sliced parsnips
    • ½ cup sliced carrot
    • ½ cup chopped onion
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ⅛ teaspoon ground pepper
    • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • 1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine squash, parsnips, carrot, and onion in a 15-by-10-inch baking pan.
  • 2 Drizzle the vegetables with oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cayenne; toss to coat.
  • 3 Roast, covered, for 20 minutes. Stir the vegetables and then roast, uncovered, until tender and starting to brown, about 10 minutes more.
  • Note: If you're following our 1,500-calorie diabetes meal plan, refrigerate 1⅓ cups of the vegetables in an airtight container for use in Creamy Roasted Vegetable Soup with Chicken and use the remainder in Piled-High Greek Vegetable Pitas (see Associated Recipes).
