Five Spice Roasted Turnips & Carrots

Many people view root vegetables as very humble veggies.  In the fall these veggies can contribute to the rainbow of colors on your dinner table and also provide an abundance of healthy nutrients in the process.  They are versatile and personally I think they are yummy as well.  With very few ingredients you can elevate your root veggies to a new level.  Don't forget to pin it for future use!

Five Spice Roasted Turnips & Carrots

3 medium sized turnips
3 large organic carrots
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. Chinese five spice

Peel and cube the turnip into 1/2" cubes.  Peel and slice the carrots into 1/2" slices.  Place the veggies in a sauce pan and cover with water.  Bring to boil and reduce heat to simmer till crisp tender, about five minutes (you don't want them completely cooked).  Remove from heat.  Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process.  Allow to sit and drain till dry.  This part can be done up to 2 days in advance of roasting.

Place a sheet pan in a cold oven and turn the oven up to 425 degrees.  While the pan is heating, toss the veggies with the oil and five spice to completely coat.  Place in a single layer on the hot sheet pan and place the pan on the lowest rack of the oven.  Allow to roast for 15 minutes, remove and toss the veggies around on the pan.  Return to the oven for another 15 to 20 minutes or until veggies are tender and browned.  Salt and pepper to taste.

You can use this method with any root vegetable.  Try different types and different seasonings.  As always enjoy your time in the kitchen!
