Instructions Checklist
  • Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 425 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Toss the vegetables with oil, vinegar, herbs, salt and pepper in a large bowl until well coated. Divide between the prepared baking sheets, spreading into a single layer.

Mine took a full 30 minutes - with an extra five for the beets. Next time I'll put all the beets at one end of the pan so I can take everything else off and just pop them back in. Also a kitchen disaster turned these from very good to great... my oven quit. So the trays all ready to go were covered in plastic wrap and sat o/night in the fridge until oven was fixed next morning. I think the extra time sitting in oil balsamic and herbs really added flavor. And the caramelization on the bottom of the veggies was fantastic. Read More

It took much longer to cook than suggested especially the beets. They need to be in small cubes. Overall good flavor. Read More

Incredibly good. I wasn't expecting much and it was a great addition to foods all week. Never used parsnips before and I was pleasantly surprised. I used butternut squash too Read More
