Happy Valentine’s Day! One of my great friends sent me this recipe. Roasted winter vegetables with a maple-ginger glaze is the perfect healthy dinner with a touch of sweetness for your sweetie.
1/2 lb. parsnips, peeled and cut into 2 x 1/2-inch sticks
1/2 lb. carrots (about 3 or 4), peeled and cut into 2 x 1/2-inch sticks
1/2 lb. turnips (about 2 medium or 1 large), peeled and cut into thin wedges
1/2 lb. Brussel sprouts, stems trimmed; large sprouts halved
1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and sliced into very thin matchsticks (about 1/3 cup)
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
1 1/2 tbs. pure maple syrup
Heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Spread the vegetables and the ginger matchsticks in a large, low-sded roasting pan or a heavy rimmed baking sheet with oil. Roast the vegetables, tossing a couple times, until tender and golden brown in spots, about 30-mintues. Combine the grated ginger and maple syrup. Drizzle the vegetables with the maple-ginger mixture, toss and roast for another 5 minutes. The vegetables should be very tender and browned in spots. Serve warm and enjoy!
