  6. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

  7. Prep and chop all the vegetables.

  8. Toss all the vegetables with the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  9. Spread the vegetables on the two prepared baking sheets. You can also fit all the vegetables onto one rimmed baking sheet, but the vegetables will be softer and you will need to roast them longer.

  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-25 minutes, until the vegetables are softened and as charred in some places as you like. Add the lemon juice and fresh herbs.
