Suppose I have a vector-valued function $f(x)$, and want to plot each component with respect to $x$.

If I try, as stated in the documentation,

Foo[inp_] := {Sin[inp], Cos[inp], Tan[inp]}
Plot[Foo[n], {n, 0, Pi/2}, PlotLegends -> Automatic]

I get a single-coloured plot without any legend. How can I add a legend saying which curve is which component? (I have tried PlotLegends-> "Expressions", which also didn't work)

The output currently looks like this: Output of command

You need to wrap Foo[n] in Evaluate:

Foo[inp_] := {Sin[inp], Cos[inp], Tan[inp]};
Plot[Evaluate@Foo[n], {n, 0, Pi/2}, PlotLegends -> "Expressions"]
