Roasted Potatoes, Parsnips and Carrots

Roasted Potatoes, Parsnips and Carrots

Roasting potatoes, parsnips and carrots have been one of my favorite side dishes lately. Love root vegetables' sweetness that is enhanced once roasted. This is by far one of the easiest side dishes, perfect for any occasion. As Thanksgiving is approaching this simple side dish might be a perfect choice alongside turkey.


This root vegetable combination is simple and delicious. They get crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. You can choose whatever spices or herbs you prefer, there is no rule here.


Kids really love this dish, I am happy I found such a good healthy way to make them eat various root vegetables. If your kids doesn't eat parsnips or carrots in other dishes they will love them cooked this way.

I love when root vegetables are roasted whole. The carrots and parsnips look amazing next to the quartered potatoes. In addition, I think it's important to always save carrot tops for salads, soups, sauces, and of course by the looks of your photo garnish.

I am health conscious and enjoy good quality meals. I am always looking for new recipes, I came across this one, it looked so good, and healthy I had to try it. I made it for the first time as a side dish for my husbands birthday meal. I used small new potatoes cut in half, I think it looked better with the whole roasted cauliflower and Filet Mignon. we will never forget this meal and I intend to make this vegetable dish often, and refer others to this web site. I look forward to trying some of your other recipes. Thank you

Oh I am so glad you enjoyed this way of preparing the side dish:) Hope you will share my blog with your family and friends Julie, and happy Easter
