    Directions
    1. 
    Heat the oven to 450 degrees F. Combine the sliced vegetables, oil, salt, and herbs in a bowl. Toss to coat thoroughly. Arrange the vegetables in a single layer without crowding on a large parchment- or foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Roast until soft on the inside (test with the tip of a knife or a wooden skewer) and browned on the outside (check the bottoms), 18 to 22 minutes. If you like, flip the vegetables halfway through cooking. Serve warm or at room temperature.
