Looking for a side for your holiday dinner? Make these roasted root vegetables. I like a mix of roasted golden beets, leeks, sweet potatoes and fennel – the perfect blend. The roasting process caramelizes the natural sugar of the root vegetables so after roasting they taste amazingly sweet and delicious.

The stars of this side dish are the golden beets. Roasting concentrates the natural sweetness of the beets and the golden beets take so beautifully to herbs. Also, they combine easily and naturally with the fragrant aroma of the whole roasted garlic cloves, which enhances their earthy flavor.

Ingredients:

  • beets – I like golden beets but regular beets work as well
  • Leeks – You can use onion instead, or spring onions
  • Fennel – if you cannot find fennel or if you don’t like it, use celery or add more leeks
  • Sweet potatoes – or use regular potatoes
  • some  oil is added when roasting the vegetables
  • seasonings: I like my typical stuffing herbs. Thyme, rosemary, sage, or use up to 2 teaspoons dried mixed herbs

Tips & Substitutions:

  • I like using these roasted veggies as a filling for my holiday roast
  • Make sure your oven is hot. Turn the oven temperature up to 400°F or even up to 425°F. The high heat will quickly coax out all those naturally sweet flavors while keeping the vegetable tender-crisp. Everything will be golden brown and delicious!
  • Use the biggest casserole dish you can find or use a sheet pan to ensure the veggies are not layered too much or doubled up and that they roast instead of steam
  • Celeriac, carrots, and parsnips would be great additions to this dish
  • You can also add some toasted bread to the stuffing and sprinkle in some vegetable broth. Do this when the veggies are al dente and then continue to bake for 15-20 mins
