Cut all vegetables length-wise

  • 2 sweet potatoes (washed and once cut in half, cut in ½ inch slices)
  • 4 shallots (halved)
  • 1 yellow onion (halved and a shallow X cut in rounded part)
  • 6 carrots (sliced in half and cut into smaller pieces, see photo)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (to drizzle)
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder (sprinkle how much you want)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder (sprinkle how much you want)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/16 teaspoon pepper


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Tear off 3 or 4 large pieces of heavy duty foil
  • Put each type of vegetable in it's own packet. Place on the lower end of the foil - leave enough room to fold and seal the foil

  • Sprinkle onion and garlic powder and salt and pepper
  • Fold foil over vegetables and seal by scrunching the ends together
  • Place foil packets on jelly roll pans and bake for 40 minutes
  • Unwrap foil carefully so you're not burned by escaping steam
  • Place in serving bowl
  • Serve
  • Eat
  • Enjoy


Helpful tips
  • Use whatever vegetable you prefer.
  • Wash the vegetables like yams and carrots before baking them. You are going to peel the onions and shallots.
  • I choose not to peel the the yams or carrots because I like the extra nutrients but if you want to, I say go for it.
  • Each vegetable get's its own foil packet.
  • Don't be afraid to be generous with the olive oil.
