Southwestern Roasted Vegetables


  • 4 cups peeled sweet potatoes, cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 1 ½ cups zucchini, cut into small chunks
  • 1 small red or yellow onion, cut into small chunks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium taco seasoning mix
  • Salt to taste (optional)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray or line with foil. In a large bowl, combine the sweet potatoes, zucchini, and onion.
