Caramelized Root Vegetable Goodness

Caramelized Root Vegetable Goodness

This recipe is being pulled out of my head but no measuring required. Really it is just a mess of yummy root veg, tossed in a yummy sauce and then roasted till all the caramelized goodness does its work!

1 lb nugget potatoes, cut in 1″ pieces
3 yam, peeled and diced in 1″ pieces
3 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced in 1″ pieces
10 peeled shallots, cut to same size as above
10-12 peeled garlic cloves

1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup maple syrup (real)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup franks red hot sauce (adjust accordingly to your heat likeness)

Mix the oil, maple syrup and brown sugar then slowly incorporate hot sauce to your taste. heat will mellow a bit as sugars develop. Toss the recipes. Spread on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Roast at 425’F for 20 mins or so until veggies are tender and caramelized.

This is yummy one! Seriously make lots.
