Ingredients

The Glaze:

The Vegetables:

  • 1 1/4 pound gold potatoes cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 3/4 pound rutabaga, peeled & cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 3/4 pound sweet potato, peeled & cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 carrots peeled & cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 red onion peeled and cut through the root into 8 wedges
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary

Instructions

The Glaze:

  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together the tart cherry concentrate, water, maple syrup and hot sauce.
  • Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer. Cook, stirring every couple of minutes, until the glaze is reduced by more than half.
  • Remove from heat and let the sauce rest for about 15 minutes to thicken further.

The Vegetables:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F, with oven rack placed in the bottom two positions. Lightly coat two baking sheets with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the gold potatoes, rutabaga, sweet potato, carrots and red onion.
  • Drizzle the olive oil over the vegetables, season with salt and crushed rosemary, and stir gently to combine. Take care not to break apart the red onions.
  • Divide the vegetables evenly between the two prepared baking sheets.
  • Roast for 20 minutes, then gently stir the vegetables and rotate the baking sheets from rack to rack, and front to back.
  • Roast until the vegetables are tender when pierced with a fork and golden brown in some spots, an additional 15 minutes.
  • Drizzle 3 tablespoons of the tart cherry glaze over each portion of vegetables. Stir gently to coat.
  • Return to the oven for 3 minutes. Serve.
