Recipe Substitution

Potatoes You can easily make this recipe suitable for those following a low-carb diet. You can
use sweet potato or radish.
I sometimes use red baby potatoes with skin and they come out with super crispy skin that everyone loves.

Carrots – Although carrots are a versatile veggie that fits in most diets, you can still replace this with parsnip or turnips.
You may also add minced fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. I see this recipe working out well with red onions as well for that extra sweetness from roasted onions.

Want it spicy? Add chili pepper flakes
