Herb Roasted Fennel, Parsnips, Carrots, and Brussels Sprouts (gluten free, vegan)

Roasted vegetables are my favorite. You can roast ANYTHING and it is amazing. For the Pre-Memorial Day backyard family get-together, we decided on a tasty blend of fennel bulbs, parsnips, carrots, Brussels sprouts, and sweet vidalia onions. Kissed with Herbes de Provence and fresh parsley, they are killer. Eat them hot or chill them, they are great either way! Makes lots, so you'll probably have leftovers!

6 parsnips, peeled, halved and cut in 2-3 inch chunks
8 carrots, peeled, halved and cut in 2-3 inch chunks
