Who doesn’t love the fall? We have the beautiful colors, the cooler air (although not here in Texas yet) and the delicious food! I just love when we get a co-op basket. To find out more about the co-op click here. It is like Christmas morning. You just never know what you are going to get. This week, when I saw we got beets and parsnips, I knew I was going to roast them. They are naturally sweet and roasting just brings out the flavor even more. It also makes a pretty dish. This turned out so well that I think next time I will throw so tofu in too.
Easy Roasted Seasonal Fall Vegetables
3-4 beets remove greens, peel and roughly chop
1 small onion chopped
3-4 parsnips peeled and cut into coin pieces
3 T olive oil
3 T Balsamic
4 garlic cloves
salt and pepper to taste
Throw everything into a zip lock bag and marinate in the fridge for at least an hour. I think we did for about 3 hours.
Preheat oven to 400 and spread the mixture onto a baking sheet. Bake for about 45-60 minutes until veggies come out tender.
Ours was devoured as soon as it came out of the oven! 🙂
