1 Prepare the ingredients:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; large dice the leaves. Large dice the potatoes.

Roast the vegetables:
2 Roast the vegetables:

Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Place the carrot pieces and diced cabbage on the foil. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 21 to 23 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.
