Ingredients

    * 6 medium beets, peeled and cut into chunks
    * 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    * 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    * 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    * 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    * 1 teaspoon sugar

    * 1 large sweet onion, chopped

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
2. In a bowl, toss the beets with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil to coat. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet.
3. Mix the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and sugar in a large resealable plastic bag. Place the sweet potatoes and onion in the bag. Seal bag, and shake to coat vegetables with the oil mixture.

    I used a clove of garlic instead of powder and I also added some baby carrots and red potatoes and left out the onion. Very good, I will make that again. Maybe blanch the beets first to make peeling easier. - 1/11/10

    I made this yesterday and it smells and tastes amazing...talk about wanting to eat all your veggies! I used 1 cup of broth instead of the oil and cooked in a baking dish for about an hour. I also removed the sugar, added carrots and apples. Love it and will be making again with the fall harvest. - 9/7/10

  • I think I may have cut my beets and sweet potatoes too small. They were a little over cooked, but I do like my veggies with a little crunch. I think next time I will shorten the cooking time and see if I like it better. - 12/5/12

  • Oh yeah! I have to have 2 servings. I also added a couple of cloves of chopped garlic, and added a chopped carrot. I could eat this breakfast, lunch, dinner and with a little cinnamon...desert. Yummmmmm. - 10/16/12
