Tips

We love these just the way they are, they are so flavorful, we do not add salt but everyone has their own taste so do place a salt & pepper grinder at the table along with your balsamic vinegar so dinner guests can drizzle extra on their portion.

My favorite balsamic vinegar is from Napa Valley Harvest, I find it at my local T.J. Maxx (only 10 calories per tablespoon) - I was amazed to learn how amazingly delicious quality balsamic vinegar is!

For Carrots & Parsnips to cook quicker, I "roll cut" them - you can google-search roll-cutting. It's so easy!


Directions

1 - Arrange oven shelves to the middle of the oven and Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
2 - You'll need 1 very large 20-cup bowl and two oiled 13 x 9-inch roasting pans (brush bottom and sides with olive oil or spray with oil).
3 - Wash all the vegetables and pat dry between a clean cloth.
4 - Peel the Sweet Potato, Parsnips and Carrots.
5 - Remove the seeds from the Bell Peppers.
6 - Cut all vegetables in large chunks approximately the size of the brussel sprouts (this is so all veggies cook evenly.) Place your veggies into the large 20-cup bowl.
7 - Drizzle 2 tbsp olive oil & 2 tbsp quality balsamic vinegar on top of the vegetables and stir to coat all the vegetables well.
8 - Divide the vegetables into the two prepared 13 x 9-inch roasting pans and place each pan in the oven.
9. Roast for 30 - 40 minutes - fork a carrot to determine doneness.

Enjoy!
