Seasonal Recipe: Roasted Root Vegetables

Jennifer Vigil Jan 1, 2013

 

Root vegetables are in season and abundant at this time of the year.  This recipe makes a wonderful accompaniment to any holiday dinner or with any main dish on a cold winter night.
This recipe has all my favorite stew veggies (turnips, sweet potatoes, carrots, potatoes, beets, and parsnips) but roasted to tender crispiness with olive oil and garlic.  For those concerned about diabetes or arthritis, sweet potatoes have a low glycemic index and are a highly anti-inflamatory food.  
 

Ingredients

  • 8 to 12 slender carrots, peeled and trimmed
  • 8 to 12 baby turnips, peeled
  • 6 to 8 potatoes, peeled and cut lengthwise in halves
  • 1 or 2 large parsnips, peeled, trimmed, and cut diagonally into 1-inch-thick slices
  • 1 or 2 medium onions, trimmed, peeled and halved, each 1/2 cut into quarters
  • 1 or 2 large beets, peeled and cut into thick wedges
  • 1 or 2 sweet potatoes bulbs, peeled and cut into thick wedges
  • 1 celery root, trimmed and halved, halves cut crosswise into 1-inch-thick slices
  • 1 whole head garlic, separated into cloves and peeled
  • 2 or 3 sprigs fresh rosemary, sage, or thyme
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Put all the vegetables and the herb sprigs in a large baking dish. Season well with salt and black pepper, drizzle generously with olive oil, and toss them with your hands to coat them evenly.

Put the baking dish in the preheated oven and cook, stirring the vegetables occasionally, until they are tender and golden brown, about 45 minutes. Serve the vegetables from their baking dish or transfer them to a platter to accompany a roasted main course. Bon appetite.
