Maple Roasted Carrots and Parsnips Recipe

Sweet, savory roasted root veggies are super easy

Peel and trim, roll in goodness and roast. It's just that easy. Parsnips add some color, texture and flavor variation to your typical fall roasted carrot dish — they're sweet and creamy when roasted, perfect for serving alongside a classic roast chicken or thick, bone-in pork chops. Of course if you want to go all cliche and serve them at Thanksgiving, you could do that too. Any friends of vegetables will surely thank you.
