When the temperature drops and the holiday season rolls around, root vegetables caramelized and covered in the autumnal flavor of maple syrup are just the thing to serve to a crowd. The vegetables in this recipe are roasted with rosemary until their natural sugars brown, then tossed in a piquant sweet-and-tangy dressing while they’re still hot. This recipe feeds a holiday crowd, but also reheats well when leftovers are portioned out for two.
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. Divide the sweet potatoes, parsnips, and carrots in two roasting pans. Sprinkle the vegetables with the thyme, rosemary, salt, pepper, and olive oil, tossing to coat.
3. Roast the vegetables for about 45 to 50 minutes, until they are lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork.
4. In a large bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, sherry vinegar, and chicken stock. Add the roasted vegetables and toss them with the liquid to coat. Transfer the vegetables to a platter and serve.
