Caramelized Root Vegetables

Caramelized Root Vegetables

Serves 8

Though parsnips resemble carrots they're never eaten raw. Here they reach their peak of flavor by being steamed, then roasted with tender, rich results.

  • 3 cups parsnips, sliced on the bias in 1/2-inch-thick pieces
  • 3 cups carrots, sliced on the bias in 1/2-inch-thick pieces
  • 3 cups rutabaga, cut into wedges
  • 1 teaspoon chopped thyme
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Steam parsnips, carrots and rutabaga over boiling water for 6 minutes, until half cooked. Alternatively, place vegetables in a microwavable dish with 1/2 inch water, cover loosely and microwave for 4 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Drain vegetables and toss with thyme, olive oil, lemon juice, pepper and salt. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper and roast for 35 minutes, until vegetables are caramelized and tender.
