A mix of colorful root vegetables may be your star side. Peeled, prechopped butternut squash saves time, but pieces tend to be irregular and small—we prefer peeling and cubing it yourself.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound peeled cubed butternut squash (about 3 cups)
  • 1 pound parsnips, peeled and cut into 1-in. pieces (about 2 1/4 cups)
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 8 ounces small Yukon Gold potatoes, halved
  • Cooking spray
