If I have a pork loin roasting at 325, and I usually roast veggies at
a 400 for 40 minutes, how long should I roast
potatoes/onions/cauliflower/carrots at 325?

Thanks!

I would say just slice the veggies up a bit smaller than normal and 
stick with the 40 minutes or so at 325 deg.  You can always leave them 
in the oven while the roast is resting, to cook a bit longer, and at a 
higher temp if needed.

 You can not bake onions with veggies , they need oil cooking to
take the bite away . The oil preserves the onion flavor which is
quickly
lost in starches like rice , S' , macaroni  et al , if no oil .
 add beef stock to onion , simmer ..

  Same for boiling them , say with spaghetti .
 Garlic should be cracked and rest for 1/2 hour .
it cooks fast .      I Nuke G' for 4 seconds at a time and G' cooks in
12 seconds , no
 bite , no smell , glutamate flavor ...

I dunno, ask an algebra teacher.  They are all different densities and
textures, so I couldn't recommend "one for all" type time.  Those
potatoes will take longest, unless they are cut up real small.
