Here is a simple and rustic root vegetable side dish offering for your Thanksgiving spread. Have you ever roasted parsnips? They’re similar to carrots in texture and flavor, but have a certain little oomph to them, a more complex cousin, if you will. If you prefer just parsnips or just carrots, you can certainly adapt this recipe to be one or the other, but I was very fond of the mix of the two, for both a wonderful earthy flavor and a pretty presentation.
This is very easy to do, which will be a warm welcome on Thanksgiving when you have lots of other more complicated dishes to fuss over. Peel, cut, toss, roast. Done. Roasting them in a maple, mustard, and thyme glaze really makes these vegetables shine and highlights their natural flavors.
