  • 1
    Wrap the beets in foil and roast them in the oven at 350°F for 1 1/2 hours. Set them aside until cool enough to handle.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, peel and chop the carrots and toss with a drizzle of oil in a 15x10-inch baking pan. Roast for about 30 minutes, turning once or twice, until soft and carrots start to turn golden.
  • 3
    Combine the balsamic vinegar and honey in a large skillet, add the carrots to the skillet along with any oil that has accumulated in the bottom of the pan.
  • 4
    When the beets are cool enough to handle, peel them with your fingers. Slice beets into wedges and place in skillet with carrots.
  • 5
    Heat vegetables over medium-high heat and cook until the glaze bubbles and thickens, coating the carrots and beets with a sticky glaze. Serve immediately, or cool and serve over a salad.

Expert Tips

  • You don't need measurements - but I've listed the proportions that I used; you can adjust each accordingly. The vegetables could be roasted in advance, then reheated in the balsamic and honey on the stovetop just before serving. - Wash beets and carrots before roasting/peeling. - Cut the green tops off of beets before roasting; beet greens can be added to salads, steamed, sautéed, etc. - Multi-tasking; peel and cut carrots while beets roasting; peel beets after roasting while carrots are roasting. - To peel beets, I suggest wearing rubber gloves and peel under cold running water. - The recipe works well while roasting a meat entrée; can roast veggies at the same time.
