Maple-Ginger-Roasted Vegetables with Pecans
Recipe from Food & Wine

When roasting winter vegetables, Melissa Rubel Jacobson says be sure to chop them about the same size, so they cook at the same rate. And toss them at least once while they're in the oven, so they brown evenly. Other creative ideas for roasted vegetables are Spiced Vegetables with Pomegranate Seeds and Roasted Vegetables with Fresh Herbs.
