Roast 'em Beets

Root vegetables are a family favourite around here.  They are easy to prepare, extremely versatile, and they just plain taste great.  It's a trifecta!
My favourite of the root vegetables, is the beet, hands down.  I'm hooked on the sweetness, and I adore the colour.  Eating should always be this pretty.

I had some leftover Gorgonzola from our pizza night on Saturday, so I decided to put it to good use and sprinkle it over some oven roasted beets.  The result?  A delicious flavour one-two punch, in your mouth.  Mmmm.

Love JS.
