Maple Cinnamon Roasted Root Vegetable Turnovers

These flaky, buttery turnovers could be filled with just about anything and I’d love them. (Have you seen my cupcake wrapped in pastry dough?)  But, these turnovers are filled with something completely fall and surprisingly healthy…

…roasted root vegetables – beets, sweet potatoes, parsnips, and carrots!  After roasting, I drizzled the veggies with maple syrup and sprinkled on ground cinnamon.

Ingredients

  • 2 small golden beets peeled and diced
  • 1 small sweet potato peeled and diced
  • ½ of a parsnip peeled and diced
  • 1 carrot peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 package 17.3 ounces/2 sheets frozen puff pastry, defrosted
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix together diced beets, sweet potato, parsnip, and carrot. Toss the root vegetables with olive oil and salt.
  • Spread vegetables on a roasting pan or Pyrex baking dish in a single layer.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, toss, and spread vegetables again in a single layer.
  • Bake for another 15 minutes or until the vegetables are fully cooked.
  • Reduce oven heat to 375 F.
  • Line two cookie sheets with Silpats or parchment paper.
  • Cut each sheet of puff pastry into four squares.
  • Place four puff pastry squares onto each cookie sheet.
  • Place ¼ cup of roasted root vegetables in the center of each square.
  • Drizzle approximately 1 teaspoon of maple syrup and sprinkle ¼ teaspoon cinnamon on top of each pile of vegetables.
  • Starting with one of the squares, fold one corner of the puff pastry dough to the corner diagonally across from it, overlapping the edge by 1/8 inch and forming a triangle. Run your thumb along the entire folded edge and press down to tightly seal the opening. Repeat on each square until you have sealed all eight turnovers.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg.
  • Brush egg on top of each turnover.
  • Sprinkle ¼ teaspoon brown sugar on top of each turnover.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until puff pastry is flaky and slightly brown.
  • Serve warm.

Notes

Although there are specific root vegetables suggested in the recipe, any root vegetable combination will work as long as you have approximately 1 ¼ pounds raw, diced root vegetables.
