Meatless Monday Roasted Root Vegetables

What food did you hate as a child, but over the years {in our older and much wiser age} have come to enjoy?  I can name a few… avocados, beans, lentils, and beets… yes I said BEETS!  I was super hesitant to even try this curiously red thing called a vegetable!  Actually to my surprise, they are delicious in this delicious Meatless Monday Roasted Root Vegetables recipe!  I challenge you to try new foods and live on the wild side! These are foods I hated as a child, but LOVE As an adult!

I Challenge you to try a new food, step out of your Food Comfort Zone and even try beets!  The roasted root vegetables are a perfect fall, winter and comfort food.  It’s also a beautiful side dish to any meat if you choose to add a meat.  However, by itself, or with a side of quinoa, it is delicious and very filling.  Please let me know what you think after you give this recipe a try.

1-2 Sweet potatoes or yams
