Maple-Glazed Roasted Veggies
These easy roasted veggies make an excellent holiday side dish. The vegetables can be roasted in advance and reheated with the glaze to save on time if needed. If parsnips are too earthy for you, substitute one large potato.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 4
- 3 carrots, chopped
- 2 small parsnips, chopped
- 2 sweet potatoes, chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- ⅓ cup maple syrup
