Maple-Roasted Root Vegetables

This dish is a great way to get more root vegetables into your diet. For a simple weeknight supper, prep the veg in the morning (or the night before).

Ingredients
  1. 1 fennel bulb, fronds discarded, cored and sliced
  2. 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  3. 5 carrots, tops trimmed, and chopped
  4. 3 Russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  5. 4 Peruvian purple potatoes (or Yukon Gold potatoes if you can’t find them)
  6. 4 red potatoes, cubed
  7. 1 large onion, peeled and cubed
  8. 3 tbsp organic olive oil
  9. 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  10. 1 tbsp fresh or dried rosemary
  11. Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  12. 2 tbsp maple-vinegar, optional
Instructions
  1. Set a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350°F.

Drizzle the oil and maple syrup over the top and sprinkle with the rosemary, salt and pepper. Add the maple vinegar if using. Toss the vegetables until everything is mixed and coated with the oil and maple syrup.
  3. Place pan in the hot oven and roast for 20 minutes. Carefully stir the vegetables and continue roasting for another 30 to 45 minutes or until a fork can be easily inserted in the largest pieces.
