Christmas Tree Romanesco Brocolli with Roasted Root Vegetables

About the Recipe:  The Christmas tree is the Romanesco, steamed in the microwave and decorated with fresh cranberries and a touch of grated Parmesan cheese.  Roasted caramelized vegetables are spooned around the serving platter and accented with fresh radish slices.  It is a beautiful vegetable dish to serve for your special holiday party.

Cook’s Note:  I used about 3 pounds of vegetables that included parsnips, turnips, golden beets, and carrots, Some were peeled; others unpeeled. If you have larger vegetable chunks, your baking time will be longer.
