Roasted Sweet and Beet Salad
1 medium beet, peeled and cut into chunks 1-1/4 teaspoons olive oil, divided 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon honey 1/2 medium sweet potato, cut into chunks 1/2 large red onion, chopped 1 cup fresh mixed greens
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss the beets with olive oil until thoroughly coated. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray and spread mixture on a single layer. Put the remaining olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper and honey in a large re-sealable bag and then toss in the sweet potatoes and onions. Seal the bag and shake to coat vegetables in oil mix. Once the oven is preheated, bake the beets for 10 minutes. Once 10 minutes is up, add in the sweet potato and onion mix to the baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 more minutes, or until soft. Make sure to check after 10 minutes and stir the mix. Keep in mind smaller pieces will cook faster. Serve over fresh mixed greens.
