This one pan Roasted Winter Vegetable Medley recipe includes brussels sprouts, red cabbage, parsnips, and parsley root.
How to Make Roasted Winter Vegetable Medley
Winter in Wisconsin signals an end to green lawns and flower gardens, but it shouldn’t signal the end to bright meals and colorful vegetables.
Sure the vegetables that you enjoyed during the summer months might not be available or as fresh as you’d like, but that shouldn’t turn you off from the incoming winter vegetables that are also packed with veggie goodness.
That’s why you’ll love this healthy one pan Roasted Winter Vegetable Medley. It’s a mix of bright green brussels sprouts, shredded red cabbage, chopped parsnips and parsley root.
And nothing brings out the rich flavors of these vegetables than by roasting in an oven or the ease of baking when you use a sided baking sheet.
Using a large bowl, toss the vegetables with two tablespoons extra virgin olive oil.
Next, add some fresh herbs like chopped rosemary and sage with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Finally, bake for about 35-40 minutes until the vegetables are fork-tender. It’s that easy.
What makes this Roasted Winter Vegetable Medley so simple and easy is that it takes only one pan to make and bake.
But you don’t have to stop there. Try adding fresh carrots, broccoli, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, summer squash, zucchini, red peppers or even sliced fennel.
