On a recent blog trip to Michigan apples, I got to try a delicious side dish of roasted root vegetables with apples. I loved the sweetness of the apples along with the savory vegetables that were perfect for fall. I put this recipe in the back of my mind to make soon.

To make it a complete meal, I made some roasted pork to go along with the vegetables and apples. I made a sweet spice rub to give the pork a lot of flavor. It turned out awesome and I would definitely make it again.

There is just something so awesome about eating seasonally which I have been enjoying doing this year more than ever. All things pumpkin, apple, butternut squash, cranberry and more have been included in my menus. By eating seasonally, you can save money and have the freshest tasting produce.

This dish would be perfect for the holidays because it is simple to make yet looks great. It is full of flavor and would impress any guest. The fruits and vegetables in this meal are plentiful this time of year making them the perfect ingredients to use.

Toss this all in the oven and you have dinner ready quickly without too much effort! You can cook it all together on one pan making cleanup simple.
