Oak Honey Glazed Root Vegetables

Course: Sides, Lunch, Dinner

As soon as there is a chill in the air, I long for roasted vegetables and never tire of trying new flavor combinations. I came across this recipe in Food and Wine by Grace Parisi and thought, "I wonder how it would taste with some portoula oak honey...". And guess what? The vegetables were amazing!! I made a couple of tweaks based on what I found at the local farm stand and you can feel free to do the same. But definitely try it and let me know what you think!

  • 2 lbs carrots

  • 2 lbs parsnips

  • 1 - 1.5 lbs celery root

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin Greek olive oil

  • 1/2 cup portoula oak honey

  • 6-8 sprigs fresh thyme

  • Kosher salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 Tbs sherry vinegar


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (I use convection setting)
  • Prepare your vegetables by peeling and slicing 1/2 inch thick; be sure to cut vegetables so they are uniform in size
  • In a large bowl, toss the root vegetables with the oil, honey and thyme; season with salt and pepper
  • Divide between two large, sturdy rimmed baking sheets
  • Cover with foil and roast for 40 minutes, shifting the pans once, until the vegetables are tender
  • Remove the foil and roast for 10-20 minutes longer, until glazed
  • Return them to the bowl and stir in the vinegar, then season with salt and pepper; add more fresh thyme - it makes a huge difference!
  • Serve right away


  • You need 5 pounds of vegetables for this recipe. A little over is probably fine too. Use whatever root vegetables you love and what's available. Heirloom rainbow carrots would be beautiful along with the parsnips. Celery root may be a little harder to find, but use it if you can find it. The original recipe called for golden beets. I couldn't find any, so I adjusted the quantities based on what I found.
  • The oak honey was beautiful in this recipe, but you can certainly use your favorite portoula honey variety and expect delicious results!
