Roasted Root Vegetables

This time I roasted sweet potato, carrots and celery root, but you can use any root vegetables that are in season.

All the quantities are approximate so you can use everything to your own taste

2 onions, cut in quarters
2 heads of garlic (in summer I use green garlic heads), cut in quarters
celery root
2 sweet potatoes
3 carrots
any other root vegetables
some black pepper, I normally ground it fresh
some thyme or rosemary
coarse sea salt
2-3 tbl spoons of extra virgin olive oil

Peel and cut your root vegetables up to your liking add the rest and mix up a bit, you actually do not need a lot of oil just a bit and then just mix trying to coat everything slightly in it. Put all that to the roasting tray, set your oven to 170⁰C and check after 30 minutes and then from time to time until it is ready to your liking. It goes well with any meat and on its own.
