Healthy Eating: Roasted root vegetables

Various root vegetables

Olive oil

Fresh rosemary



Balsamic vinegar

Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven at 450 degrees. Cut the root vegetables into hearty chunks; you can use carrots, onions, Brussels sprouts, rutabagas, turnips, beets, any kind of squash, potatoes, mushrooms, garlic, etc. Drizzle olive oil over the vegetables and season with rosemary, salt and pepper. Toss the vegetables together to evenly coat them with the oil and seasonings. Roast in the oven for about 40 minutes, or until tender. When the vegetables are almost cooked through, drizzle a small amount of balsamic vinegar over the vegetables. Let them roast for another 5 minutes, and serve with grated Parmesan.

Tips: You can serve the vegetables over cheesy polenta or in a salad. Another option is using leftovers as pizza toppings with ricotta and mozzarella.
