Roasted Beets, Turnips, and Carrots

Roasting vegetables is my favorite way to prepare them. I usually just throw some olive oil, salt, and pepper on my vegetables and let them roast in the oven. Sometimes it’s nice to actually mix things up and throw in a few extra ingredients.

Roasted Root Vegetables

The sage is nice and earthy while the balsamic vinegar is just sweet enough. This recipe is great for any old day of the week or for a special occasion. Use any root vegetables that you have on hand. And remember to be careful while handling beets if you use them since they stain everything!

Roasted Beets, Turnips, and Carrots

Yield: Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

3 red beets, peeled and cut into wedges
3 turnips, peeled, if desired, and cut into wedges
3 carrots peeled, cut into 1-inch chunks
4 Tbsp butter, melted
2 Tbsp chopped fresh sage
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

Directions:

Preheat an oven to 400°F.

Place the beets, turnip and carrots on a baking sheet. Pour the butter over the vegetables. Sprinkle with the sage, salt and pepper. Toss until the vegetables are coated, then spread in an even layer. Roast, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes. Continue to roast, without stirring, until the vegetables are tender, 20 to 30 minutes longer.

Using a large spatula, transfer the vegetables to a serving bowl. Pour any remaining pan juices into a small bowl and whisk in the vinegar. Drizzle over the vegetables, toss and serve. Sprinkle with chopped fennel greens.

    I like to stuff my squash with something savory, like spicy sausage stuffing but your dish makes me re-think the whole concept!

    This looks awesome! I roasted an acorn squash the other night and chopped it up and threw it in a salad. You’re making me wish I had stuffed it instead though!

    I linked to this recipe from Examiner. 🙂

    hmm… is this something you think could be adapted for use with butternut squash? Obviously not really “stuffed”. I have a butternut that I’m looking for something to do with…
