Level Up Your Roasted Root Vegetables With A Jam Glaze

Level Up Your Root Vegetables with a Jam Glaze

Root vegetables, like carrots and parsnips, are versatile and especially delicious when roasted. Add an unexpected twist of flavour by glazing them with jam. Since root vegetables tend to have a mild taste, you can experiment with whatever jam you have in your fridge.

You can easily make a glaze by combining 1/4 cup jam and two tablespoons of liquid such as water, balsamic vinegar or citrus juice. If you want a thicker glaze, use less liquid. Chef Jose Garces suggests you combine the jam glaze with other spices (like mustard or caraway seeds) for a balanced, savoury dish. You'll end up with more depth to your glazed veggies.
