    I'm British, we have a LOT of root veggies, I've been making this recipe for years. I chunk instead of dice the veggies and mix the Balsamic vinegar in the initial mix, marinate for an hour or so then roast. Sprinkle with sea salt/sea weed mix for extra crunch before serving. Great cold too! - 11/17/09

  • I made a large serving (2 cookie sheets) of these and it's so delicious, I'm glad for the quantity. It reheats easily in my toaster oven or, as someone else said, it's delicious cold.
    No turnip but added a red onion - I don't think you can go wrong with adding any fresh vegetable to this - 10/31/13

    I LOVE seeing Every Guide Line to Eating "RIGHT" all within Their Ranges. I feel Every Recipe should be Like This One. Meaning Meg, Everything Stayed within the Nutritional Value Guidelines & "Us Sparky's still can eat other Meals.

    As Chef, you need to be REMINDED of this Fact.

    I didn't have turnips or parsnips but I added a couple of zuccinni. I put all the veggies in a bowl after they roasted and tossed them in the vinegar just before serving. my whole family liked them. Next time I'll try the vinegar before cooking. - 3/22/10

    I don't like most veggies and have never been able to get used to them roasted. When I do eat veggies, it's usually fresh as in Tossed Salad, Cesare Salad, Potato Salad, raw cauliflower, mushrooms, tomtoes, carrot and celery sticks, and pickles (cukes) lol. Cooked veggies (very few) only in stew. - 11/17/09
