Roasted Beets, Sweet Potatoes & Orange Segments with Goat Cheese
3 small beets, peeled and chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 large sweet potato, washed, skin left on, chopped into bite-sized pieces
2 large oranges, zested (about 2 teaspoons at least), and cut into thin slices to remove triangular segments (see picture)
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/2 cup goat cheese, or more if preferred
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a roasting pan lined with tinfoil.
2. Combine the beets and sweet potatoes in a bowl with honey, coconut oil, orange zest and pepper. Stir well to evenly incorporate. Transfer mixture into the roasting pan. Bake until beets and potatoes begin to brown in the edges and become tender (about 30-45 minutes). Stir around to cook evenly. Lay orange segments on top. Bake until orange segments begin to caramelize.
3. Remove from oven and gently toss with goat cheese. Serve warm or chilled as a great side dish or snack!
