EwE. -Jewel Roasted Vegetables

This week in our cooking with Ellie group Margaret chose vegetables as our theme!  Vegetables are not only so good for us they are also very tasty.  I looked at all of Ellie's recipes and I decided to make the roasted jewel vegetables.   Other than a bit of chopping they are easy to make.   We love fresh beets but they are very staining to your hands when you are chopping.  The red will wash off though thank goodness.  And they are so good they are worth a little extra effort to cut up.   I found this recipe on the Internet so I am posting it here.  Enjoy!

Check out our website at EWE

4 medium beets
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 1/2 pounds carrots
1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
8 large garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon freshly chopped thyme leaves

Put the beets into a small baking dish and rub them with 1 tablespoon of oil. Cover the dish with foil and put into the oven for 30 minutes.
In the meantime, peel and cut the carrots into 1-inch pieces, trim the Brussels sprouts and halve them lengthwise, and peel the garlic cloves. Put the carrots, Brussels sprouts and garlic cloves into a large baking dish and toss with the remainder of the oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
After the beets have been cooking for 30 minutes add the large pan of vegetables to the oven and cook everything for 1 hour more, stirring the vegetable mixture once or twice.
Remove the beets from the oven and transfer them to a cutting board to cool. Stir the thyme into the carrot and Brussels sprouts mixture and let it continue to cook for another 10 minutes while the beets are cooled and cut. When the beets are cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes, peel them and cut them into 1-inch pieces. Remove the other vegetables from the oven, toss with the beets, season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve.
