Balsamic Roasted Root Vegetables
Make the most of the wonderful winter root vegetables when they are at their best!
YOU WILL NEED
- 2 small onions
- 4 baby turnips
- 2 medium potatoes
- 4 medium carrots
- 2 small sweet potatoes
- 5-6 baby beetroot
- 2 t (10 ml) Ina Paarman's Green Onion Seasoning
- 1 x 300 ml Ina Paarman's Classic Balsamic Vinaigrette
- fresh lemon thyme leaves or chopped parsley
Adjust the oven rack to the middle position. Preheat oven to 220°C.
Cut the onions into wedges and break the ‘leaves’ apart. Scrub the turnips (no need to peel) and cut each into 6 wedges. Scrub the unpeeled potatoes and cut into 8 wedges. Scrub the carrots and cut on the diagonal into 2 cm lengths. Scrub the sweet potatoes and slice into 1 cm thick half rings. Peel the beetroot, leaving a bit of root, and cut each into 6 wedges. Toss all the vegetables (except the beetroot) together in a flat ovenproof dish or pan. Season with Green Onion Seasoning and toss with ¾ of the bottle of Balsamic Vinaigrette.
Shake the pan to level the vegetables.
Place the beetroot in a separate small dish, season and coat with the remaining vinaigrette.
Roast the vegetables open for 45 minutes. Toss with fresh herbs before serving.
