Roasted Root Vegetables with Date Honey & Balsamic Vinegar

Ok, I will admit it.

I sometimes (often, perhaps), buy vegetables that my family doesn't like.
Particularly root vegetables - turnips and radishes are very often available for 1-2 shekels/kilo,and are also often on the "sug bet" rack. But they're hardy, and even the ones that are "sug bet" are totally fine inside, even if the outside is not the prettiest:

But despite being so affordable and the fact that they are storable for a long time, my family doesn't really like radishes, turnips, and the like. So I HAD to find a way to make them tastier. I often put them in soup, and I like them that way, but some people in my family will poke and prod at them and eat around them...

Today I decided to roast them. I've done it before, and they're ok roasted with olive oil, salt, and pepper, but not delish.

This time, I chopped up a bunch of turnips, radishes, carrots that needed to be cooked, onion, and garlic.

I tossed them with olive oil, a large dollop of date honey, balsamic vinegar, some salt, and some crushed black pepper. And put it in the oven to roast at about 220 C.

It started to smell really good, and when it came out, I snuck a few tastes and decided THIS is what I'm doing with those root veggies from now on!
