    These veggies are delicious! I omitted the microwave step, cut the recipe in half for the two of us, and roasted the veggies until tender. An easy side dish to prepare and something I will definitely make again!

    I omitted the microwave step . I simply roasted all of the vegetables together on a baking sheet, stirring occasionally. I used seasoned garlic salt. I also did use this much olive oil, just enough to cover lightly.

    This was a nice recipe for fall. I used turnips rather than parsnips, omitted the allspice, and added a sliced apple before putting it in the oven. I will make this again
