  • 1 lb. multi-colored carrots or use regular carrots, sliced, halved and sliced if they are very large
  • 3/4 lb. beets peeled and chopped into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 tsp. kosher salt
  • 3 Tbsp. walnuts toasted
  • 1/4 lemon juice only (about 1 Tbsp.)
  • 1 - 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh thyme or use 1/4 tsp. dried
  • 1 goat cheese crumbled


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, toss the carrots and beets with the oil and salt. Spread them on a baking sheet and roast them for 30 minutes, tossing once after 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, toast the walnuts at 300 degrees in a toaster oven or in a pan over medium-low heat for about 4 minutes until they are golden but watch them closely so they don’t burn. Let them cool and break them into smaller pieces.
  • Return the carrots and beets to the bowl and toss them with the lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, and thyme.
  • Lay them on a platter and sprinkle the cheese and walnuts over them and season them with freshly ground pepper. Serve them immediately or cover them for up to an hour.
