Roasted Winter Root Vegetables

These roasted root vegetables are colorful and delicious. More importantly, they can be partially prepared so as to ease the amount of preparation on turkey day. I often serve them with roast beef as well. The recipe can be easily scaled to suit a smaller yield.

Ingredients

  • 5 pounds rutabaga, peeled and cut into 2x1/2 inch pieces

  • 5 pounds parsnips, peeled and cut into 2x1/2 inch pieces

  • 5 pounds carrots, peeled and cut into 2x1/2 inch pieces

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ¼ cups vegetable oil

  • ¼ cup dried basil

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 ¼ cups chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Place the rutabaga in a pan and cover with water. Add 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer until tender and easily pierced with a fork, about 5 minutes. Drain well, and cool completely. Repeat steps to cook the parsnips and carrots.

  2. Place completely cooled vegetables in resealable freezer bags. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 days, or freeze up to 1 month. To thaw the vegetables, refrigerate overnight and drain.

  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  4. Pour the vegetable oil into a rimmed baking dish. Place the vegetables into a large mixing bowl and toss with the basil, salt, and pepper. Place the pan in preheated oven to heat for 5 minutes. Add the vegetables and toss to coat with the oil.

  5. Roast vegetables in preheated oven, turning every 10 minutes, until tender and golden brown, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
