Side Dish Recipe: Roasted Root Vegetable Medley
Roasted root vegetables are an excellent source of nutrients and a great way to utilize these veggies in a tasty way, since they’re generally not given as much attention as other, non-root compatriots. This vibrant dish — made even more so if you decide to include beets — requires little effort, apart from the prep work, and tastes great paired with anything! Plus, it’s really filling, so if you have a main course that’s on the lighter side and you want to beef if up a little, this recipe is perfect!
