Roasted Potatoes, Carrots, Parsnips and Brussels Sprouts

Potatoes, carrots, parsnips and brussels sprouts are tossed together with dried herbs and roasted to perfection. I can’t believe it has taken me so long to share this recipe, it is seriously fabulous! I made this delicious side dish for Christmas dinner and received rave reviews. The original recipe called for an obscene amount of pepper and a dash of salt. I adjusted the seasonings to suit our taste and it is phenomenal. I usually don’t care for brussel sprouts, but this recipe has changed my mind! 😉 After everyone was finished with their plate, they were coming back for more roasted brussel sprouts. Brussel sprouts!? I served this for a special holiday dinner, but they are so easy and fast that they would be perfect for a week night meal.

    I LOVE roasted vegetables, and totally agree that Brussels sprouts are so much better when prepared this way! I found a recipe last fall for maple roasted veggies, and it became one of our favorite side dishes… almost like candy for a veggie lover like me! It’s on my blog if you’re interested in another variation. Have a great day!

    Roasted vegetables are so delicious! My mom loves turnips and I don’t make them nearly enough. I love all the herbs that you put on this. This would be so good with roasted chicken or salmon! Thank you for sharing. Your sweetness on my blog means so much.
