Thanks to my Door to Door Organics delivery, I decided to experiment with fresh, organic beets and leeks. I roasted the ingredients to perfection, bringing out the right mixture of sweet and savory. So yum! Beets are a wonderful vegetable to add to your diet. They help fight inflammation and satisfy your sweet craving. Plus, the phytonutrients found in beets (which give beets their deep red color) may help to ward off cancer too!
Cut off ends of leek so only the white and light green parts are showing. Discard the ends of the leek. Slice leek in half lengthwise and then slice the half slices lengthwise again. Then cut the leeks into large chunks and separate all parts. Add to mixing bowl.
Place all ingredients in a single layer on the baking sheet and roast for about 25 minutes until beets are soft and leeks are just starting to brown (but not burn). Check pan every 10 minutes to ensure nothing gets overcooked and to mix ingredients often.
Store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge.
