Roasted Root Vegetables with Curly Endive

I really enjoyed this dish.  I ate it twice while Jud was out-of-town and decided to have this as I side dish with grilled chicken.  Most people have roasted vegetables, the  extra layer of flavor in this dish is the curly endive. 

Printable Version:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Choose at least 4 of the following vegetables to equal 1 pound of diced root vegetables.

Parsnips, Red or Yukon Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes,Turnips, Carrots

Place these in a large bowl and add 2 shallots cut in thick slices along with 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil salt, and pepper.  Mix thoroughly and spread on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil.  Bake for 45 minutes and then add about 1/2 head of curly endive. Season with more salt and pepper and mix well.  Bake for another 20 minutes until endive has wilted.
