Family-Friendly Side Dish: Maple Roasted Vegetable Sticks


A tasty vegetable side dish that everyone will enjoy


  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 2 turnips
  • 2 large carrots
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Cut your vegetables into a stick shape.  You can cut them any way you want, actually, but the stick shape is great if you have a toddler in the house.  Kids like foods that look like French fries.  That’s just the way of the world.  Put the big pile o’ vegetables in a bowl and pour on the maple syrup and oil and add the salt and a generous amount of pepper.  Toss to evenly coat the veggies.
  2. Spread out the coated vegetables on a baking sheet (you will probably need 2–you don’t want to overcrowd the veggies) and roast for 30-45 minutes, stirring the vegetables once or twice during the cooking time for even roasting.
