- 1 1/2 cups pecans
- 4 medium carrots (3/4 pound), peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick on the bias
- 2 large parsnips (1 pound), peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick on the bias
- 1 medium head cauliflower (2 1/2 pounds), cut into 1-inch florets
- 1 small butternut squash (2 pounds)—peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch dice
- 1 pound brussels sprouts, halved
- 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
- Preheat the oven to 425°. Spread the pecans in a pie plate and toast until fragrant, about 6 minutes. Let cool.
- In a large bowl, toss the carrots, parsnips, cauliflower, squash and brussels sprouts with the olive oil and nutmeg and season generously with salt and black pepper. Spread the vegetables on 2 large rimmed baking sheets and roast for 30 minutes, until the vegetables begin to brown. Scatter the pecans and ginger over the vegetables and drizzle with the maple syrup; toss well. Continue to roast the vegetables for 25 minutes longer, until they are tender and golden. Scrape the vegetables into a bowl and serve hot or at room temperature.
The roasted vegetables can be kept at room temperature for up to two hours before serving.
