Roasted Beet and Sweet Potato Salad with Caramelized Orange

Salads | May 31, 2015 | By

A bunch of years ago, my mum and I made a recipe for roasted broccoli, a cooking method we had never really used with vegetables. After that, we were hooked and started roasting anything we could think of; it’s quick and makes everything (even brussel sprouts) taste amazing. In the winter, almost every meal involves a pile of roasted veggies and no one’s gotten sick of them yet. In the summer months, we usually convert to barbecue cooking but in yesterday’s endless downpour, I decided to turn the oven on. The oranges are what make this recipe seasonally appropriate; juicy and sweet, they really brighten the salad. And for the beet and sweet potato, I just wash them and leave the skin on, avoiding the peeling process all together. Extremely simple, it’s a salad that’s warm but refreshing and sure to convert anyone over to roasting their vegetables.

Makes about  6 portions

Ingredients:
3 beets
1 medium sweet potato
