Fall is here, which means root vegetables are in abundance. Roasting root vegetables is one of my favorite ways to eat them. It is simple and versatile.
*Pick 3-5 of your favorite root vegetables--these are a just few good options!
1/2 lb. beets*
1/2 lb. carrots*
1/2 lb. yams or sweet potatoes *
1/2 lb. yukon gold potatoes*
1/2 lb. rutabaga or turnip*
1 medium yellow onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
3/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 c pure maple syrup
2 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
Pre-heat oven to 400°F
- Wash, peel and chop up vegetables.
- Combine vegetables with olive oil, salt, maple syrup and ginger. Use your hands to make sure all the vegetables are coated.
