These easy roasted veggies are a great brunch side dish. (Or, try topping a hearty serving with a poached egg for a satisfying entrée.)
2 pounds fingerling potatoes, washed and sliced into halves (if smaller) or quarters (if large)
1 small bunch carrots, peeled and sliced into matchsticks
1 bunch Hakurei turnips, washed, scrubbed and sliced into halves (if smaller) or quarters (if large)
1 red onion, peeled and chopped into small wedges
1-2 tablespoons olive or grapeseed oil
½ teaspoon sweet paprika
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400°. Place potatoes, carrots, turnips and onions in a baking dish large enough for vegetables to spread out into a single layer. (Don’t crowd, or the vegetables won’t have a chance to crisp and brown. If necessary, divide the vegetables onto two baking sheets.) Add oil and spices and toss evenly to coat.
2. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes, stirring once or two during roasting, until potatoes are pierced easily with a fork. Remove from the oven, drizzle with about a teaspoon of olive oil and garnish with the fresh parsley.
Variation: These vegetables are also lovely with sautéed Shiitake mushrooms tossed in!
