Yield Makes 6 servings
Balsamic vinegar and rosemary lend a tasty twist to this contemporary classic. Beets generally take a few minutes longer to roast than other root vegetables, so slice them into smaller pieces to ensure all vegetables reach tenderness at the same time.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 2 large parsnips, peeled, quartered, and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 3 small beets, peeled, quartered, and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 2 carrots, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 1 turnip, peeled, quartered, and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1 small rutabaga, peeled, quartered, and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Whisk together first 3 ingredients in a bowl. Add parsnip and next 4 ingredients; toss until vegetables are well coated. Add salt and pepper, and toss again. Place in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake at 450° for 15 minutes. Stir vegetables, and bake 15 more minutes or until slightly crisp and golden but tender.
