Killer, Killer Roasted Root Vegetables...

This Dish is Killer!  And It's Easy!

Tonight I roasted beets, turnips, apples and garlic.
Recipe for four:

6 red, gold or chioggia beets peeled and cut into wedges
6 turnips peeled and cut into wedges
1 large red onion quartered
1 medium size apple cubed
1 whole head of garlic separated and root end trimmed but leave skin on
1 sprig rosemary
3 sprigs lemon thyme
1 stick of butter
1 cup Madeira wine
1 cup chicken or vegetable stock
1 teaspoon each or salt and pepper
1 pinch chili flakes

Turn your oven on to 375*

This dish is flexible you can add carrots, parsnips or whatever else you want to cook.
First peel the beets and turnips, and cut into wedges and then cut apples in to cubes.   In a roasting pan, place beets, turnips, apples and garlic, and a good drizzle of olive oil and mix with your hands.  Then add all of the ingredients and cover with foil, and place in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour.  This dish is fantastic, you can serve it with meat, fish, rice or quinoa...

Bon Appetit!
