Here, a medley of root vegetables and winter squash are roasted with chermoula (also spelled charmoula), a quintessential Moroccan spice combination. (Any combination will work in this dish; start with about 12 cups of peeled vegetable pieces.) Be sure to peel turnips well; their skin is thicker and more fibrous than other root vegetables'.

Very good dish. I used a combination of carrots brussel sprouts beets and a sweet onion. The beets took the seasoning quite nicely the onions carmelized a bit and did get a little red from the beets which didn't bother me. I left the brussel sprouts whole. I plan to use this for sides and a winter salad with greens during the week. Next time I will try a different vegetable combination. I found this to be a satisfying side. Read More
