Introduction

This recipe sings of the fall and early winter harvest.



This recipe sings of the fall and early winter harvest.




Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 T olive oil
    1 red onion, sliced
    4 cloves garlic, peeled and cut in half
    2 carrots, peeled and diced
    1 turnip, peeled and diced
    1 yam or sweet potato, peeled and diced
    2 parsnips, peeled and diced
    1 t dried rosemary
    1 t dried thyme
    1 pinch salt
    1/2 t black pepper
    1 T balsamic vinegar, optional

Tips

Take advantage of the local farmers market and buy whatever root vegetables they have. I like a bite to the vegetables, so I drizzle a small amount of balsamic vinegar over the vegetables while they are still hot.This side dish is quite affordable: about 60 cents a serving for the vegetables!


Directions

Preheat oven to 375F. Spray a baking sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl; toss to combine. Place mixture on a sheet pan. Bake 30 minutes, turning vegetables every 10 minutes until vegetables are tender and slightly browned. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar before serving.
Makes 8 servings (1/2 cup).

    I added brocolli, carrots, celery, portabella mushrooms, granny smith apples,used fresh herbs plus basil, omitted the salt, added cayenne pepper, used vegetable stock instead of olive oil, and baked it in a covered baking dish at 350 for 1 1/2 hours or until tender. The flavors are combined YUM! - 12/16/09

    started using a recipe like this years ago - now family favorite but not considered "a diet food"! To control the amount of oil used (and unnecessary calories) - chop the vegetable in to 1" pieces, put in gallon bag with 2-3 tbls oil, let sit for an hour, rotate bag to distribute thinest oil layer - 12/25/09

    Great way to make use of end-of-season CSA veggies (beets, turnips, parsnips, taters, squash, etc). I switched to my favorite seasonings (cumin, corriander, allspice and cinnamon) to give it a bit more kick. Also chilled veggies in spices and oil in a ziploc before cooking to increase the taste. - 11/1/10

    Maybe it is my oven, but mine needed about 40 mins to cook. Save yourself some time and leave the peel on the sweet potato - it doesn't effect the flavor! - 11/10/09

    Another fun veggie to add to this is brussel sprouts. When cooked this way they are actually sweet, not bitter at all. Kids will like them because they look like cute mini-cabbages. - 4/18/11

    I make this all the time but I omit the rosemary,thyme and garlic. I add about a cup of chicken stock, a 3 inch piece of ginger chopped, some cayenne pepper and a little bit of brown sugar. Dot with some butter and cover with foil and cook for an hour covered then about 30 min uncovered. - 12/15/09

    Had my husband make it yesterday. One word: YUM! This will probably be a stable for us from now on. I love that there is turnip and parsnip in it - two veggies, that don't get a lot of attention these days. We will tinker with the spices too :). - 11/30/09

    I really enjoyed this recipie. The second time I made it, I deleted the onion and garlic. They seemed a bit strong for the dish. I also used a bit less pepper. My compliments to the Chef, Chef Meg, that is! - 12/6/09

    Since it is spring and fresh root vegetables are a way off in my locale, I thought that I would mention that this also work well with spring/summer vegetables. I do a version of this with zuchinni and yellow squash, onions, colored peppers, asparagus - whatever I have in alum pan or foil on grill. - 5/10/11

    This is a great side, and the nutrition values are so healthy. I make a version substituting Dijon mustard for the oil, or part of the oil, and have found the mustard is not obvious when baked. - 11/23/10

    Cooked for 45 minutes, my family liked sweet potatoes, onions, garlic. Carrots a bit underdone inside, too dark outside. Did not use parsnips or balsamic vinegar at end. - 12/20/09

    I make this all the time, sometime add portabello mushroom. I put everything in a ziplog bag, zip it and shake it a bit to get all the spices mixed with veggies (saves in washing a bowl!!!). Then follow the recipe but bake in 400. it roasts and caramelizes. - 1/15/12

    I put a white potato in instead of turnips and parsnips, but it was delicious and so much healthier than some of the veggies we eat! It would be even more flavorful with a different balsamic vinegar. - 10/18/20

    I love using roasted vegetables to make soup. It gives the soup a smoky caramelized flavor that's missed when using raw veggies. I saute onions in small amount of olive oil. Stir in aromatic spices. Add roasted veggies. Add water or broth to cover vegetables. Bring to boil. Simmer, cool, blend. - 1/19/16

    Really wanted to try this one night but got home late. Decided to give it a shot anyway and microwaved the veggies for 5 minutes before putting them in the oven. 15 minutes later they were perfect. Keep in mind with these timings that I only did half the recipe. There was only 2 of us eating. - 9/7/15

    I make this all the time - varying the vegetables with whatever the farmer's market has - beets, turnips, parsnips, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, carrots.....can't beat the flavor you get when you roast the veggies! - 3/31/15
