The winter brings an abundance of colorful root vegetables. If you roast them, the natural sugars intensify and make a great side to dishes like pork, chicken, or lean steak. Keep this simple recipe in mind and you'll find roasting is a great, easy way to cook up winter vegetables.
This combination was inspired by a recent trip to the farmer's market where I found purple (Japanese) sweet potatoes, but feel free to mix and match sweet potatoes, purple or red potatoes, or any other root vegetable. Just cut all vegetables to the same size and they will roast up fine.
Servings: 6 servings
*Add honey for a touch of sweetness if desired.
Also appropriate for Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten Free diets.
