  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Toss the cut veggies with olive oil and rosemary.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, rub with a little oil, then put in the oven for 5 minutes to heat up. When hot, spread the cut veggies in one layer and sprinkle with salt.
  4. Return to the oven and bake on a high shelf. Turn the veggies from time to time for even browning. Bake until they are tender and golden, about 30 minutes. 
  5. For the 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.
