Candied Parsnips & Sweet Potatoes with Greens

Ingredients

  • 3 medium parsnips, sliced into 2" chunks
  • 2 medium organic sweet potatoes, sliced into 2" chunks
  • 1 Tbsp Eden Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Eden Shoyu Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp Eden Barley Malt Syrup, or maple syrup
  • Grated zest from one lemon
  • 1 bunch greens, (pak chop, watercress, mustard, kale, Italian broccoli, dandelion, turnip, etc.)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, combine parsnips and sweet potatoes with oil, soy sauce, vinegar, syrup and lemon zest. Mix well to coat the vegetables. Transfer the vegetables to a shallow baking dish, taking care not to overlap the vegetables (this will cause uneven baking). Cover and bake for 35 minutes. Remove the cover and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes, until tender and the edges are browned.

Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of water to a boil and cook the greens until crisp but bright green, about 2 to 3 minutes. Drain well and cut into bite-size pieces.

To serve, arrange greens on a platter and mound roasted vegetables on top. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
