  • Summary

    This recipe includes a little citrusy butter melted over the vegetable once they are out of the oven. If you're feeding kids, though, remember that they sometimes prefer their roasted vegetables plain. When carrots or other roots are at their best, that's how I like them, too.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest, plus 1 1/2 teaspoons orange juice
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 pound carrots, peeled
    • 1 pound parsnips, peeled
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
