  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Divide the produce between the 2 sheets. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Mix well to make sure everything gets coated, and arrange the produce cut side down on the sheet. Sprinkle herbs, torn from the stem, on both sheets.

  3. Roast on the middle rack for 25 minutes, then check to see how brown the bottoms are. If they aren't golden, continue roasting another 5-10min, checking on them until they get some color. Flip over everything to the other cut side and move the sheets to the bottom rack. Cook for another 5-10 minutes until that side is golden too.

  4. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before removing from sheet. Transfer to a platter and garnish with a few sprigs of herbs.
