Kids Cooking Recipe: Roast Potatoes, Carrots & Onions

Posted by the Mom (aka Kelly Biedny)

In the fall, when the temps start cooling off, our oven starts working over-time.  The opportunity to cook without sweating along with the abundance of fresh garden veggies, has us welcoming the warm, sweet smells of roasting foods floating in the air.  Today we’re sharing one of those ‘roasted food’ recipes with you!

Soph says I have three of her favorite potato recipes. She likes my mashed potatoes, my potato chips AND these roasted potatoes with carrots and onions. Alex agrees with her and despite his non-like of carrots, he eats them when they’re roasted up this way.  Soph also enjoys helping make this one…it gives her lots of practice cutting.

This is a simple recipe to put together, and although much of the work lends itself to older kids, there are steps that younger children can dig into as well.

What are some fall recipes your family enjoys? Let us know by sharing in a comment!

Happy family cooking everyone!

Kids Cooking Recipe: Roast Potatoes Carrots & Onions

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes

Yield: About 4 Servings

Kids Cooking Recipe: Roast Potatoes Carrots & Onions


  • 4 Large Potatoes
  • 1 Large Onion
  • 1/2 lb Carrots
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning


  • Kids young and old can wash the potatoes and carrots. You can peel them if you want, but we do not, just give them a good scrub and they're good to go.
  • Next cube your potatoes, onions and carrots so they are all similar sizes. This is best for kids with good knife skills. If you are using a safety knife, younger kids could help with the carrots, but the potatoes and onions are easier with a standard knife.
  • Have one of the kids place all of your veggies on a baking sheet or a cake pan and then measure and add the Olive Oil, Salt and Italian Seasoning.
  • Next is the fun part, tossing all the veggies in with the oil and of any age can help with this step...just take clean hands and get to mixing.
  • Place the veggies into a 450 degree oven for about 40 minutes. When they are all soft and browned they are ready!
