Oven-Roasted Autumn Vegetables


Ingredients
1/2 pound each rutabaga, carrots, and parsnips, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed
1 small head cauliflower, cut into florets
1/2 pound yams or sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 TBS unsalted butter
1 TBS extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp fresh chopped thyme
2 tsp freshly chopped sage
1/8 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup Marsala
Directions: 1. Preheat the oven to 450. Bring a pot of boiling salted water to a boil. Add the rutabaga, carrots, parsnips, and Brussels sprouts and simmer until they give slightly with a fork, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon. Add the cauliflower and simmer 1 minute. Drain.
2. In a large roasting pan, place the rutabaga, carrots, parsnips, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and yams or sweet potatoes. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the oil, thyme, sage, and nutmeg and stir. Drizzle the butter mixture over the vegetables and toss to coat them completely. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour the Marsala into the bottom of the roasting pan. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil, toss the vegetables, and continue to bake until the Marsala is evaporated and the vegetables can be easily pierced with a knife, 20 to 30 minutes.
