These root vegetable turnovers are made with roasted beets, potatoes, parsnips, and carrots wrapped up in delectable store-bought puff pastry – this turnover recipe is approachable and easy. When you bite into one of these hot, flaky vegetable turnovers, you’re greeted with fall and winter flavors like maple and cinnamon.
These vegetable turnovers could be filled with just about anything and I’d love them. Although there are specific root vegetables recommended in the recipe, any root vegetable combination will work as long as you have about 1 1/4 pounds raw, diced root vegetables.
How to Make These Turnovers
Start by roasting peeled and diced root vegetables with olive oil and salt in an oven preheated to 400 F.
After roasting for 30 minutes, drizzle the root vegetables with maple syrup and sprinkle on ground cinnamon.
Lower the oven temperature to 375 F while you finish preparing the vegetable turnovers.
Next, wrap the vegetables up in pieces of puff pastry.
Brush on a beaten egg to give them a beautiful, golden color.
Sprinkle a little brown sugar on top to add a touch of caramelization and sweetness.
Put the uncooked turnovers back into the oven to finish baking them.
The whole recipe takes about an hour from start to finish.
