This recipe sings of the fall and early winter harvest. Take advantage of the local farmers market and buy whatever root vegetables they have. I like a bite to the vegetables, so I drizzle a small amount of balsamic vinegar over the vegetables while they are still hot. This side dish is quite affordable: about 60 cents a serving for the vegetables!
