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.
