Maple roasted vegetables

We always enjoy roasted vegetables throughout the seasons, and this recipe is another way to prepare them quickly and easily.  I found this recipe in Real Simple magazine, March 2017.

I roasted the vegetables at 375 degrees for about 35 minutes, although the original recipe said to roast at a higher temperature for a shorter period of time.  I found my vegetables were perfect and very tasty.

Try this idea for your next gathering.  I whisked 2 tablespoons olive oil with 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup, with a dash of salt and pepper to taste in a small measuring cup.

Mix with one-half box of Brussels sprouts, which have been cleaned and halved, along with a 1/2 bag of small carrots in another bowl.  Spread the vegetables onto a sheet pan covered with a Silpat mat.  Bake at 375 degrees in a pre-heated oven for about 35 minutes or until browned to perfection.

Enjoy these vegetables as a side dish to chicken, fish or red meat entrée.  Also, these vegetables could accompany a small pasta dish.
