Roasted Root Vegetable Blend
serves 7 to 8 (harmonyvalleyfarm.com)
- 1 medium yellow onion, medium dice
- 9 cups root vegetables and/or winter squash, cut into medium dice (any vegetables you have-carrots, celeriac, potatoes, beets, parsnips, turnips, etc.)
- 3 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 tsp. Herbs de Provence or Italian Seasoning
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp sea salt
Asian Garlic-Ginger Glaze:
- 1 Tbsp ginger, peeled and grated or minced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ cup soy sauce (reduced sodium recommended)
- 2 to 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup or honey, to taste
- 2 tsp red chili sauce (such as sriracha) or ½ tsp red pepper flakes
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put the diced onion and root vegetables in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle the vegetables with oil and sprinkle with the Herbs de Provence, chili powder and sea salt. Use your clean hands to toss the vegetables and mix to ensure everything is well-coated. Spread the vegetables in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Use two baking sheets if needed in order to keep the vegetables in a single layer.
2. Roast the vegetables for 40 minutes, turning and stirring once, or until they are tender and golden brown.
3. While the vegtables are roasting, prepare the glaze. Add all glaze ingredients to a small skillet and bring to a full, but controlled, boil. Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cook, while whisking frequently, until the volume is reduced by half; about 4-6 minutes. Remove glaze from heat and set aside until ready to use.
4. Remove roasted vegtables from oven, drizzle with glaze, and stir to coat. Serve warm.
