Roasted Roots

Yield 4 to 6 servings
If your parsnips are wide at the root end, cut chunks in half lengthwise for even cooking. Be careful not to crowd veggies in the pan--it will hinder their browning. Use two pans, if necessary, to prevent crowding.


  • 1 1/2 pounds carrots, peeled and cut into 1 1/2
  • 1 1/2 pounds parsnips, peeled and cut into 1 1/2
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

How to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients in a shallow roasting pan or broiler pan; toss well, and spread in a single layer. Roast at 475º for 30 minutes, stirring after 25 minutes.
