Roasted root vegetables with goat cheese

Submitted by: ERIKA05

Introduction

This side dish has become the unexpected MVP of my holiday dinners, against a very competitive field including mashed potatoes! Also makes a great salad when served warm over spinach, kale and arugula.

Ingredients

    Parsnips, 1 cup slices or ~ 4 medium
    Carrots, 1.5 cup slices or ~ 6 medium
    Fresh Beets, 2 large
    Olive Oil, 0.33 cups
    Fresh thyme, 2 tbsp
    Garlic, pressed, 4 cloves or to taste
    Dried Rosemary, 1 tbsp
    Balsamic vineagar, 1 tbsp
    Coarsely ground sea salt and pepper to taste
    Soft Goat Cheese ~ 6 oz, sliced

Directions

Preheat over to 375 degrees. Peel and slice root vegetables into ~ 1/2 inch rounds or chunks. If you'd like larger chunks, or want to include larger pieces of carrot or parsnip for visual appeal, a longer cooking time may be required. Placed peeled and chopped veggies in a pan large enough so that the are no more than 2 layers "deep." Drizzle olive oil over vegetables and sprinkle with all thyme, garlic, and rosemary - toss to coat pieces evenly. Drizzle balsamic layer over the top and bake, tossing once, for ~45 minutes or until veggies are soft and slightly crispy at the edges. Remove veggies and turn oven to broil. Slice goat cheese into discs on top of vegetables and return to oven. Broil ~ 3 minutes (depending on oven and position of rack) until edges of goat cheese round brown slightly. Let cool 5 minutes and serve.
