Recipe from Cooking Light

Maple caramelizes to form a glossy coating on the vegetables. Cubed butternut squash or sweet potatoes would also work well in the mix.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (1/2-inch) slices carrot
  • 1 1/2 cups (1/2-inch) slices parsnip
  • 1 1/2 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled turnip
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. 2. Combine first 6 ingredients in a 13 x 9–inch baking dish coated with cooking spray, tossing well to coat. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Stir in syrup. Bake an additional 20 minutes or until tender and golden, stirring after 10 minutes.
