“This is one of those simple roasted vegie recipes that make you wonder why you didn't think of this years ago! It was by accident I discovered my roasting forgotten beets taste like candy. So simple, so good, and so good for you! Serve with butter, salt and pepper, or olive oil and lemon juice, or as is! And since Zaar doesn't allow just one ingredient I had a glass of wine while cooking this.”
