Maple Roasted Carrots & Parsnips

Yields: 4-6 side dish portions



Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Spray the foil with non-stick spray.

Add the prepared carrots and parsnips to a bowl. In a smaller bowl, stir together the oil, maple syrup, mustard and thyme until well combined. Drizzle most of the mixture over the vegetables, reserving about 1/4 of it for later. Toss the vegetables to coat and spread them out into a single layer on the baking sheet. Season generously with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper.

Roast for 15 minutes. Stir and turn the vegetables. Roast another 15-20 minutes or until tender and caramelized on the edges. Transfer to a serving dish and drizzle with the remaining maple mustard mixture. Serve.
