    strawberrybird's Note:

    What makes this recipe stellar is three things: 1) the low amount of oil compared to other recipes, 2) preheating the baking sheet, and 3) adding the vinegar and honey after the beets and carrots have been heated. It makes for a simple and yummy recipe.

      Since I've been getting fresh beets in my CSA box I've been trying various beet recipes, including several for roasting them. This is the best by far. I used Balsamic vinegar. Next time I make it - and I'll definitely make it again - I'll try to remember to take a photo. Thanks for posting it.

      Excellent. No optionals. I used local raw honey plus the rest of the ingredients all organic. I'd make this again!
