Roasted Parsnips & Carrots with Shallots

This recipe works well with any number of root vegetables—use whatever you have in your crisper!

Ingredients:
3 cups carrots, scrubbed and sliced into 1-inch pieces
3 cups parsnips, scrubbed and sliced into 1-inch pieces
2 shallots, peeled and cut into wedges
2 tablespoons olive oil
Freshly-chopped herbs of your choice, such as parsley and thyme
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Method:
1. Heat the oven to 400°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment.

2. Using your fingers, toss the carrots, parsnips and shallots with the oil and a large pinch of sea salt in a bowl and then transfer to the baking sheet.

3. Put the vegetables in the oven and roast for 20 minutes. Flip them gently with a spatula and continue to roast until the vegetables are browned and crispy, another 10 to 20 minutes. Season with additional salt and pepper if desired. Garnish with freshly-chopped herbs. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.
