Roasted Root Veggies

Today a classic root vegetable recipe: Roasted Parsnips, Carrots and Beetroot. A three veggie side-dish that works well with many dishes.

Inexpensive and good for your health. Root vegetables are packed with antioxidants. They contain healthful fiber and slow-digesting carbohydrates, which make you feel full and help regulate blood sugar and the digestive system.

One of my favorite sides to any holiday meal or festive dinner. Hearty and warming. Soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. This is an easy perfect roasted veg dish.
