Honey-Roasted Root Vegetables

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Leigh Ann Ross
Yield 8 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
Honey amplifies the natural sugars of the caramelized vegetables in this dish. If you can't find tupelo honey, substitute another medium-color, floral variety, such as dandelion, loosestrife, or orange blossom.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups coarsely chopped peeled sweet potato (about 1 large)
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped peeled turnip (about 2 medium)
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped parsnip (about 2 medium)
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped carrot (about 2 medium)
  • 1/4 cup tupelo honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 shallots, halved
  • Cooking spray
