Cider-Glazed Roots with Cinnamon Walnuts

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/cider_glazed_roots_with_cinnamon_walnuts.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 2008

Here we roast a variety of roots with a brown sugar-cider glaze. Make them instead of candied sweet potatoes at your Thanksgiving celebration. If you include red beets, the whole dish will take on a gorgeous ruby hue.

6 servings, about 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. If using parsnips, quarter lengthwise and remove the woody core before cutting into 1-inch pieces. Whisk cider, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish until the sugar is dissolved. Add root vegetables and toss to coat. Cover the baking dish with foil.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and stir the vegetables. Continue cooking, uncovered, stirring every 20 minutes or so, until the vegetables are glazed and tender, about 1 hour more.
  4. Meanwhile, place walnuts in a small skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and add butter, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Stir until the butter melts and the nuts are coated. Spread out on a plate to cool slightly.
  5. Transfer the vegetables to a serving dish and sprinkle with the cinnamon walnuts.
