Soft Roasted Winter Vegetables With Herbs

Broccoli, yams, red onion and olive oil brim with phytochemicals. This vegetable medley makes a terrific accompaniment to seafood or chicken.

2 yams, trimmed and cut into bite-size chunks
1 red onion, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 375 F. Place vegetables in a roasting pan. Add oil, herbs, salt and pepper, and toss well to mix. Shake roasting pan to scatter vegetables evenly. Roast, turning vegetables with a spatula occasionally, for 45 minutes, or until soft and browned.
