Marsala-Glazed Winter Vegetables

Photography: Karry Hosford
Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
Marsala wine imparts a rich caramel flavor to the vegetables, but you can also use dry sherry. Parboil the vegetables before roasting to soften them so they'll better absorb the flavors of the seasonings. For the best flavor, use freshly grated nutmeg instead of bottled ground.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled rutabaga (about 1/2 pound)
  • 1 1/3 cups (1/2-inch-thick) slices parsnip (about 1/2 pound)
  • 1 1/4 cups pearl onions, peeled (about 1/2 pound)
  • 1 cup (1/2-inch-thick) slices carrot (about 1/2 pound)
  • 1 1/2 cups trimmed halved Brussels sprouts (about 1/2 pound)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup dry Marsala wine
