This week’s Diabetic Side Dish of the Week is Roasted Parsnips, Carrots, and Red Onion. To make this week’s recipe you’ll be needing Carrots, Parsnips, Red Onion, Balsamic Vinegar, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Salt, and Black Pepper. The Dish is 107 calories and 16 net carbs. The recipe is from the Diabetes Self Management website where you can find a huge selection of Diabetic Friendly Recipes, Diabetes News, Diabetes Management Tips, and more!

Roasted Parsnips, Carrots, and Red Onion
Full of flavor and a cinch to prepared, these balsamic-coated root vegetables are a hearty side dish that sure to hit the spot!

Ingredients
2 carrots (9 ounces), cut into 2-inch-long pieces
2 parsnips (9 ounces), cut into 2-inch-long pieces
3/4 cup vertically sliced red onion (1/4-inch slices)
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: about 3/4 cup per serving

1 – Preheat oven to 425°F. Line large baking sheet with foil or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

2 – Combine carrots, parsnips, onion, vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper in large bowl; toss to coat. Spread in single layer on prepared baking sheet.

3 – Roast 25 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.

Note: Parsnips are a pale white root vegetable similar to the carrot in shape. The parsnip, however, is broader at the top and has a smoother skin. The longer it stays in the ground, the sweeter it becomes. Choose parsnips that are firm, unblemished, and small or medium in size (about 8 inches long). Rinse and scrub parsnips with a vegetable brush to remove embedded soil. Peel parsnips with a swivel-bladed vegetable peeler or paring knife. Trim off ends and discard. For even cooking, parsnips are best chopped, cubed, sliced, or cut into strips before cooking.
