These roasted root vegetables use maple syrup and orange juice as well as cinnamon and ground cloves to give the dish a wonderful level of taste.
I love to roast vegetables. Cooking them in the oven brings out their natural sweetness and adds a lovely flavor to them. For another way to roast veggies, see my roasted carrots and mushrooms side dish.
For another great roast vegetable recipe idea, try this roasted beet salsa. It’s easy to make and tastes amazing.
Roasted Root Veggies with Maple Cinnamon
We served this recipe for Christmas dinner this year, but they are easy enough to share all year round.
Start by poreheating your oven to 375º F and spraying a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Next, combine your vegetables and place them into the prepared baking dish. Any root vegetables will do. I used carrots, parsnips, onions and regular potatoes. Sweet potatoes would also work well. The main thing is to try and get your pieces a similar size.
Juice two oranges and set this aside. This will give cut the maple syrup a bit and make the dish savory sweet.
In a bowl, add the orange juice and whisk together the rest of the ingredients until light and frothy. and pour the mixture over the vegetables, tossing to coat well.
Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and bake an additional 20 minutes, tossing after 10 minutes to coat with the cooking liquid. Be sure to toss the vegetables again before serving.
