Balsamic Roasted Root Vegetables


This balsamic roasted root vegetables is one of the easiest dinners to make on weekday nights.
It requires little effort and it’s a nice way to use up any extra potatoes and other vegetables you have on hand that may otherwise go to waste.
In this instance, it’s potatoes from last week, leftover carrots saved from juicing, and radishes we got for the weekend’s salad.
I wasn’t sure about roasting radish, but they came out mild, tender and sweetened.
I chose to cut the vegetables up into bite size chunks, but it can be roasted whole or quartered or however…
The vegetables are tossed in a simple balsamic marinade with Dijon mustard and cumin for warmth. The balsamic marinade gives the dish a nice flavourful boost.
It’s rustic, aromatic and hearty; it’ll probably make a great side dish when paired with meat or fish, a pair mine with a side of sautéed spinach.
I love it, especially with this cool change in the season.
