  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch-thick pieces

  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 1 medium parsnip, peeled and cut into 1-inch-thick pieces

  • ½ medium red onion, cut into thin wedges

  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 3 cups fat-free milk

  • 1 cup reduced sodium chicken broth

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a 13x9x2-inch baking pan, combine carrot, sweet potato, parsnip, red onion, and garlic. Drizzle with oil; sprinkle with half of the thyme and all of the pepper. Toss to coat. Cover with foil.

  2. Roast for 20 minutes. Remove foil; stir vegetables. Roast, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes more or until vegetables are tender.

  3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, whisk together milk, chicken broth, flour, and the remaining thyme until smooth. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Add roasted vegetables. Cook and stir about 1 minute more or until heated through.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
