F. Scott Fitzgerald hit the nail on the head when he said: "Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall." Fall is full of excitement-- everything seems to pick up all at once. Since we know you've got a lot going on, we have a festive fall recipe that's as easy as boiling water! To make the cutest Halloween roasted veggies, you'll need:
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 2 white potatoes
- 4 carrots
- 3 red beets
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of rosemary
- 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar
- A little salt, pepper, and garlic
- Cut sweet potatoes and white potatoes in half, width wise, and boil for 5 minutes then remove.
- Boil the whole beets and carrots for 5 minutes.
- While the beets and carrots are cooking, cut the potatoes into ½ inch thick slabs.
- Cut jack-o-lantern shapes into the sweet and white potatoes with the smallest knife you have.
- Take the beets out of the pot and cut them into ½ inch thick slabs, then cut out witch's hat shapes.
- On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic, and rosemary leaves.
- Bake at 400 degrees F for 1 hour and turn the vegetables halfway through.
- When you have 10 minutes left, drizzle balsamic over the beets, and you're done!
