This recipe is delicious! I did find the beets need longer to bake and asparagus needs less time if you like it crunchy, 10 – 20 min depending on the thickness. Served with Meridian’s chickin breast grilled while the veggies were roasting.

The 2nd time I made this I sliced the beets and put in the oven first for 10 minutes, then removed the pan turned over the beets, added the carrots, sweet potato and onions for another 10 minutes, then turned and added the asparagus and roasted another 20 min, turning often. You can also pull out the asparagus early if it’s done.

The peanut sauce is amazing (left out the raw garlic though).

Great recipe for other cuts of meat, last night we pan fried Meridian’s baseball cut top sirloin – Yummy!
