1 large yam, peeled and cut into chunks
8 whole garlic cloves, peeled

Prepare all of the vegetables and keep them separate. Toss all of the vegetables in the olive oil and place them on a baking sheet lined with rosemary sprigs by length of baking time.
The mushrooms, onions, peppers, fennel will take about the same amount of time, 10-15 minutes.
The baby carrots, celeriac, and yam will take about the same amount of time, 20-30 minutes.
The garlic will only take about 5-10 min to bake.
Once baked, you may toss them together or serve displayed separately on a tray. Drizzle a finishing olive oil and the optional balsamic vinegar over the vegetables. Garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs.
