Brighten your Winter meals with this colorful Roasted Winter Vegetable Medley of brussels sprouts, red cabbage, parsnips, and parsley root.
One Pan 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.
That’s why you’ll love this Roasted Winter Vegetable Medley. It’s a mix of bright green brussels sprouts, shredded red cabbage, chopped parsnips and parsley root.
But you don’t have to stop there. Try adding fresh carrots, broccoli, sweet potatoes, summer squash, zucchini, red peppers and even sliced fennel.
What makes this recipe so delightful is that it takes only one pan to make. And, simple? Absolutely. Just toss the vegetables in extra virgin olive oil, fresh herbs, and a little salt and pepper and bake for about 35-40 minutes. It’s that easy.
You might wonder what to serve alongside this side dish. I’d like to recommend the following delicious main dish options:
Roasted Winter Vegetable Medley
- 3 cups red cabbage shredded
- 2 cups parsnips peeled, chopped into 1/4 inch slices
- 2 cups parsley root peeled, chopped into 1/4 inch slices
- 2 cups brussels sprouts halved
- 1 cup red onions chopped
- 1 tbsp rosemary chopped finely
- 1 tbsp sage chopped finely
- 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven to 400° F.
- Prepare the vegetables as noted above.
- Prepare the baking sheet with Silpat sheet, parchment or if using a baking dish, lightly brush inside with olive oil.
- Begin layering the vegetables, red cabbage first, and then follow with parsnips, parsley root, onions and finishing with the brussels sprouts.
- Drizzle with olive oil over the top of the vegetables and sprinkle with chopped herbs.
- You can sprinkle with a light pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper.
- Toss gently, but try not to disturb the cabbage layer.
- Place baking sheet in oven and bake for about 30-40 minutes or until vegetables come out fork tender.
- Once you get to the 30 minute mark, it’s best if you check on the vegetables every five minutes or so. You don’t want to overcook them.
- Remove from oven and transfer the vegetables into a serving dish. Serve hot. Enjoy!
