Recipe

Roasted vegetables are probably the side dish I prepare most often. Usually I try to keep things seasonal and roast up whatever veggies I have on hand. The key is choosing vegetables that have similar cooking times so that everyone cooks evenly instead of ending up with some burnt veggies and some completely raw veggies. This is a lesson it took me countless failed attempts to finally take to heart.

This simple roasted vegetable recipe focuses on using delicious root veggies and then finishing them off with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and a trip to the broiler. Delicious and special enough for a holiday gathering.
