  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  
  2. In a large bowl toss and coat the vegetables with olive oil and rosemary.
  3. Spread the vegetables in one layer on the baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Roast for 15 minutes and then remove from oven and turn the fries so that the cooked sides face up. Return to oven and roast for an additional 10-15 minutes or until tender and crispy on the edges. 
  4. To make the Healthy Yogurt Ranch Dressing: In a small bowl, combine the parsley, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well, then stir the spice mixture and honey into the Greek yogurt until thoroughly combined. Serve on the side for dipping. 

Chef Tips

You can even experiment with roasting other vegetables too, like sunchokes, beets, or turnips.

For a lower fat content, use 2% Greek yogurt. We don’t recommend 0% because it doesn’t have the right creaminess for this dip, plus some brands use thickeners to give the yogurt the right mouthfeel.
