Roasted Root Veggies

  • Rinse carrots, parsnip and beet under cold water. Peel skin off and cut into small cubes. Place on non-stick baking surface and drizzle with liquid-y runny honey (if needed previously melted on low temp.), 3 tbsp olive oil, vinegar and top with thyme.
  • Mix until all roots are coated with marinade. Bake in preheated oven (190 C/ 375 F) for about 30-40 minutes, or until beets become tender. Preserve in air-tight container (when cooled down) or use immediately in salad.


  • Place arugula in a salad dish of choice. Then top with roasted vegetables and walnuts, then drizzle with olive oil (1tbsp or more). Mix until well combine and enjoy in good company.
