These deliciously toothsome veggies are cut to look like fries and a great way to get kids big and small to eat their veggies. Try them anywhere where you’d use fries or roast potatoes. Roasting...

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Toss the cut veggies with olive oil and rosemary.
  3. Rub a non-stick cookie sheet with a little oil and put in the oven for 5 minutes to heat up.  When hot, spread the cut veggies in one layer and sprinkle with salt. If not using a non-stick sheet tray, line with parchment paper.
  4. Return to the oven and bake on a high shelf.  Turn the veggies from time to time for even browning until they are tender and golden about 30 minutes. 
  5. In a small bowl, combine all dry ingredients (parsley, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper). Mix until are evenly distributed, then stir the spice mixture and honey into the Greek yogurt until thoroughly combined.

Chef Tips

Roasting is a great way to sweeten up many unpopular veggies, as in cauliflower, broccoli, and brussels sprouts.
