Prep Time: 10mins
Cook Time: 40mins
Total Time: 50mins
Course: Side Dish
1poundbeets, washed and cut into 1 inch cubes
1poundcarrots—I use Les Petite Carrots from Trader Joe's
1/4cextra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1/8cgolden raisins and/or cranberries
1/2a lime to juice
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a large bowl, toss beets and carrots in olive oil until evenly coated.
Spread onto a large baking sheet, and salt and pepper. Mix with hands and place in center of oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring about halfway through to ensure even baking. I prefer a longer roast time so the veggies begin to caramelize, but the amount of time in the oven is a matter of personal taste!
Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. When cooled, transfer to a platter, sprinkle with goat cheese crumbles, almonds, cranberries, and a squirt of lime juice.
