This is one of my favorite things to do when I'm looking at a mound of roots. Roasting them caramelizes the roots and brings out their sweetness.
- Olive oil
- As many different roots as you want cubed (Beets, carrots, parsnips, turnips, rutabagas, potatoes, sweet potatoes, celeriac, onions, whole garlic cloves)
- herbs of your choice
Clean your roots and chop them up into small cubes. Put them on a baking pan and poor oil over them and mix until coated. Add dry herbs if you like (rosemary and thyme are good ones). Place in the oven at 400 and roast for about 30 minutes or until tender, stirring once in a while. Remove from oven and sprinkle with pepper and salt
