The roasting makes these veggies extra sweet and even people who don't like beets or parsnips usually love this dish. You might want to line the baking sheets with parchment or use a Silpat mat.
- 2 -3 yukon gold potatoes, 1 1/2 inch pieces
- 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
- 2 parsnips, peeled and cut into 2 inch long pieces

- Preheat the oven to 400.
- Place the cut root vegetables in a single layer on one or two large baking sheets.
- Stir together the oil, maple syrup and garlic cloves and drizzle over the vegetables.
- Stir to combine the oil with the veggies and then spread once again in a single layer on the baking sheet.
- Season with salt and pepper.

Oh my yum! This was so good! I have been looking for a way to roast vegetables successfully (mine always dry out or burn on the pan) but this worked beautifully! I used parchment under my vegs (onion, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and carrots). The only thing I would change is to reduce the olive oil a little bit - maybe switch the amounts of olive oil and maple syrup. I can't wait to make this again trying turnip and parsnip!
This dish was the hit of Thanksgiving dinner. I did not use beets due to personal preference, and added carrots instead, but the dish was fantastic. My husband has requested it be a regular feature at mealtimes - and since it is so easy to do, I am sure we will have it often. Thanks for sharing this terrific recipe.
These were good, but too sweet for our taste. Roasting the veggies gives them a wonderful sweetness already. The maple syrup just made them overly sweet and became the dominant taste, overpowering the other food on the plate. I like the idea of the oil and syrup mix, but next time I think I will use half the amount of syrup.
