Description

Gorgeous herb roasted root vegetables tossed with fresh herbs, garlic and olive oil.  This easy herb roasted root vegetable recipe includes tender beets, rutabaga, turnips, carrots, parsnips, yams, carrots, fingerling potatoes and red onions for a colorful and delicious, healthy side dish.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fingerling potatoes (about 15 multicolor potatoes), quartered (or cut into roughly 1-inch cubes)
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and chopped into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 large red onion (mine weighed 14 ounces), peeled and quartered
  • 1 medium yam or sweet potato, chopped into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 large parsnip, peeled and chopped into 2-inch pieces*
  • 1 turnip, chopped into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 small rutabaga, peeled and chopped into 1-inch cubes (mine was 3/4 pound)
  • 4 small beets (about 1/2 pound), scrubbed and tops trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, pressed through a garlic press or minced
  • 1 teaspoon fine grain salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
  • 1/4 cup fresh chives, chopped
  • Leaves from 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, chopped, plus several whole sprigs for garnish.
  • Optional: You could also top with additional fresh herbs such as sage, parsley or thyme.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and line two large baking sheets with non-bleach parchment paper and set aside.  You can also use cast iron skillets.  
  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss all the vegetables with olive oil, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper.
  3. Divide the vegetables evenly between the two pans (or two cast iron skillets), spreading them out into one even layer with space in between each piece to avoid steaming.
  4. Roast the vegetables on the middle rack of your oven (uncovered) until tender and golden brown, stirring once half way through, about 45 minutes.
  5. Top with more fresh herbs for garnish. Serve hot.

Notes

*Some very large parsnips have a pithy core, which should be trimmed before cooking.
