Our Healthy Root Vegetable Bake is a delicious way to add extra vegetables into your diet. It’s simple to make and easy to scale up or down for a family.  It’s so simple and delicious, you will love it as a main or a side! Serve with brown rice or add a protein source for a complete meal.


Units Scale
  • two cups chopped carrots (can be peeled but not necessary)
  • two cups peeled and chopped beets
  • two cups chopped potatoes or sweet potatoes
  • 24 tablespoons balsamic vinegar – I just shake the bottle and drizzle as much as I like
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, avocado oil, or melted coconut oil – I also just shake and drizzle
  • one bunch chopped fresh cilantro – if you don’t like cilantro, try parsley!
  • sea salt


  1. Chop up all your root veggies. You can make as much or as little as you like.
  2. Spread them evenly over a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle balsamic vinegar over the entire pan.
  4. Drizzle olive oil, avocado oil, or melted coconut oil over the entire pan.
  5. Mix well, making sure everything is coated. Sprinkle with sea salt – as much or as little as you prefer.
  6. Cover the entire baking sheet with foil and bake at 400 degrees for one hour.
  7. Once uncovered and out of the oven, sprinkle fresh chopped cilantro over the roasted vegetables.
  8. Serve. If desired, sprinkle feta cheese.


This recipe will serve 4 as a main or 6 as a side. To scale the recipe, click scale 2x or 3x.

Vegetables – you can do this with any type or root vegetable, and you can change the amounts as you like. I love carrots, beets, and potatoes (sweet or gold) and so that’s what I used. Make it yours!

Oils – I like olive oil for this, but you could use just about any healthy fat, including ghee.

You can also pre-mix all these vegetables in a large bowl to make sure they’re more evenly coated with oil and balsalmic vinegar, but I honestly hate doing dishes and try to use as few dishes as possible so I’ll have fewer to wash later. Just being honest here.

You could also use a covered casserole dish rather than a baking sheet with foil.
