Cook's Country Roasted Glazed Parsnips and Carrots with Orange and Thyme - Instructions


Creative glazes and a novel cooking method transform humble root vegetables into exciting side dishes.
You can also make this recipe with 2 pounds of carrots and no parsnips. Serves 6.

1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees F. Toss carrots, parsnips, 1
teaspoon thyme, vinegar, marmalade, ginger, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and melted butter in
13-inch by 9-inch glass or ceramic baking dish. Pour water over vegetables, cover with foil, and roast
until vegetables just begin to soften, about 20 minutes.

2. Remove foil and continue to roast, tossing occasionally, until vegetables are tender and browned and
liquid reduces to a thick glaze, 20 to 25 minutes. Add remaining teaspoon thyme and cubed butter and
toss. Adjust seasonings and serve.
