Miso Glazed Root Vegetables

1 pound carrots, scrubbed and cut into large chunks
8 medium beets, peeled cut into thin wedges
1 large red onion, peeled and cut into wedges
(you could also use parsnips, turnips, radishes, butternut squash, acorn squash, or pumpkin––whatever the fall harvest has in store)
Olive Oil
Salt and pepper
3 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, sliced
2 tablespoons miso paste
2 tablespoons mirin
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 scallion, chopped (optional)
Instructions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Spread the vegetables out on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Roast the veggies in the oven for 45 minutes, until crisp on the outside.
In the final 10 minutes of roasting time, make the glaze. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 3 minutes. Whisk in the miso paste, mirin, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Bring to a simmer and bubble for 2 minutes.

Pour over the vegetables, toss, and arrange on a platter. Garnish with scallions if desired. Serve!
