roasted veggies with balsamic vinaigrette

Roasted Veggies with Vinaigrette
Serves: 8
  • 6 medium beets, ends trimmed
  • 6 medium carrots, peeled
  • 2 large fennel bulbs
  • 4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1¼ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp natural honey
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Wrap each beet in a sheet of aluminum foil. Roast for 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, halve the carrots lengthwise, then cut them into 2-inch pieces. Cut each fennel bulb into eighths. In a roasting pan, combine the carrots, fennel, 2 tbsp of the oil, ¾ tsp of the salt, ¼ tsp of the pepper, and enough water (about ¾ cup) to measure ¼ inch deep. Cover with foil and roast for 15 minutes. Uncover and cook until tender, about 15 minutes more; let cool.
  3. Remove the skin from the beets, place them on a cutting board lined with plastic wrap, and cut into quarters. Transfer the vegetables to a platter.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, vinegar, and the remaining oil, salt, and pepper. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the vegetables and sprinkle with the parsley. Serve warm or at room temperature.
