Baking root vegetables in the oven instead of steaming them in the microwave makes them especially tender. Plus, they give my house a wonderful aroma.—Rebecca Dornfeld, Grass Lake, Michigan

"I love the taste and aroma of this dish. I have made it several times and am happy to try some new vegetables I've shied away from in the past--turnip, rutabaga and parsnips. Goes great with roast beef."
