Roasted Baby Spring Vegetables

Becky Luigart-Stayner

Yield 7 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
Use white balsamic vinegar to maintain the vegetables' vibrant hue. Look for baby carrots with tops, which have tender texture and subtly sweet flavor. Small carrots packed and sold as "baby" carrots are actually whittled-down mature vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped shallots
  • 1 pound baby carrots with tops
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 fingerling potatoes, halved lengthwise (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 1 (6-ounce) bag radishes, halved (about 1 3/4 cups)
  • 2 cups (2-inch) slices asparagus (about 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

Return pan to oven; bake 5 minutes. Stir in parsley and chives.
