Roasting root vegetables is one of the easiest ways to prepare large portions of tasty complex carbohydrates for meal prep or a dinner party.
I have a few roasted root vegetables recipes on this blog but what I like about this one is the ginger! This recipe incorporates a couple tablespoons of grated ginger that really works well with the potatoes and beets.
Pair this recipe with your favorite protein like chicken, black eyed peas or salmon. I enjoyed it from grilled chicken and a green salad.
Try this recipe and let me know what you think. Be sure the roast the beets separately from the other vegetables; after roasting combine all the roasted vegetables.
Prep Time: 15 minutes . Cook Time: 45-60 minutes . Yield: Serves 8

2. In a small baking tray place the beets. In a separate and larger baking tray place the remaining root vegetables. Season both trays with ginger, garlic, thyme, garlic, cayenne pepper, paprika, black pepper and salt. Be sure to pull the leaves off the stems of the thyme; use the leaves and the stems.
3. Drizzle oil into both trays and toss vegetables so they are evenly covered with seasonings and oil.
4. Roast for 45 to 60 minutes; toss after the first 25-30 minutes. Combine beets with other roasted root vegetables.
