Roasted Vegetable Fries Ingredients:
4 Tbsp OLIVE OIL (extra virgin)
3 Tbsp MAPLE SYRUP
3 Tbsp DIJON MUSTARD
SALT and PEPPER, to taste
2 med-sized SWEET POTATOES (steak fry-sized pieces)
4 PARSNIPS (peeled, steak fry-sized pieces)
4 CARROTS (steak fry-sized pieces)
1 ONION (sliced)
GARLIC cloves (sliced in halves or whole)
Preheat oven to 425.
When slicing the root veggies, leave on the skins if desired. The skins will taste great roasted and you'll have added nutrition as well. Place prepared veggies in bowl large enough to mix.
In a small bowl, mix together syrup, mustard, oil, salt & pepper.
Toss chopped veggies with syrup mixture, coating well.
Spread sliced vegetables out in a single layer onto a cookie sheet--use two sheets if necessary; make sure the veggies are not piled up or jammed together.
allow the veggies to roast, turning occasionally, until brown and cooked through [approx. 25 minutes, it will depend on volume and size of veggies].
The longer you cook them, the crispier they'll get.
