Total Time:

This recipes lets you treat vegetables simply. Boost the flavor of sweet roasted parsnips, carrots, beets and turnips with a splash of vinegar and tamari (a type of soy sauce).


  • small white Japanese turnips, halved lengthwise
  • 2.5 Tbsp distilled white vinegar
  • Pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped rosemary
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped sage
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped thyme
  • 0.25 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • small golden beets, scrubbed and quartered lengthwise
  • 6 medium carrots, preferably mixed colors, halved lengthwise
  • 3 medium parsnips, quartered lengthwise
  • 2 Tbsp tamari


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a large saucepan of salted boiling water, blanch the turnips until barely tender, about 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the turnips to a baking sheet to cool slightly. Add the parsnips and carrots to the saucepan and bring to a boil, then simmer until barely tender, about 2 minutes; transfer the carrots and parsnips to the baking sheet. Add the beets to the saucepan and simmer until just tender, about 5 minutes; transfer to the baking sheet and let cool slightly.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the vegetables with the olive oil, thyme, sage and rosemary and season with salt and pepper. Spread the vegetables in an even layer on 2 large rimmed baking sheets. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until browned in spots. Transfer the vegetables to a platter. Drizzle with the vinegar and tamari, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Serve.

Make Ahead: The vegetables can be prepared through Step 1 and refrigerated overnight; bring to room temperature before roasting.
