Recipe: Roasted Root Vegetables

Roasted Root Vegetables:

 This dish is a great alternative to potatoes.  Cutting the vegetables into similarly sized chunks will help them to cook evenly.  Serves 8

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks (approx. 1¼ inch)

2 parsnips, peeled and cut into chunks

2 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks

2 turnips, peeled and cut into chunks

3 Tbl extra virgin olive oil

6 sage leaves, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

¼ tsp. of ground chipotle pepper or smoked paprika (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.   In a large bowl, toss the root vegetables with the olive oil, sage, and garlic.  Season the vegetables with a generous amount of salt, pepper, and, to add a little smokiness and heat to balance the sweetness of the vegetables, the chipotle or paprika.
  2. Roast on a parchment-lined sheet pan for about 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are golden brown and cooked through.
