A super easy side dish that is perfect alongside a weeknight roast chicken or your Thanksgiving turkey. Add a couple peeled and chopped beets to the vegetable mixture if you’d like. Save leftovers to toss with salad greens for lunch the next day.

2 cups peeled and coarsely chopped sweet potato (about 1 large)
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped parsnip (about 2 medium)
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped carrot (about 2 medium)
1 ½ cups coarsely chopped turnip (about 1 medium)
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
3 shallots, peeled and quartered

Preheat oven to 425°.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; toss to coat. Place vegetable mixture on a sheet pan covered with parchment paper. Bake for 35 minutes or until vegetables are tender and begin to brown, scraping the pan and stirring the vegetables after 20 minutes.
