  • 2-3 pounds assorted winter vegetables, such as carrots, turnips, rutabagas, parsnips, pearl onions, and potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup chicken or veal stock, plus more as needed
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Handful of chopped fresh herbs


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Scrub vegetables and peel as desired. Cut into 1-to-2-inch pieces (they should all be of similar size).

  2. Place butter in a roasting pan and heat in oven until melted. Add vegetables, 1/4 cup of stock, and salt and pepper. Stir well to coat, and return to oven.

  3. Cook vegetables for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally and adding more stock as needed to keep vegetables slightly moist. Vegetables are done when tender and golden brown. Stir in herbs and serve.
