Heart Healthy Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Beets Recipe
Preheat oven to 400°. In a bowl, toss the sweet potatoes with 1 teaspoon of the oil. In another bowl, toss the beets with 1 teaspoon of the oil. Season the sweet potatoes and the beets with the salt and black pepper. Place the vegetables on separate baking sheets. Roast the sweet potatoes for 45 minutes, or until brown around the edges. Roast the beets for 1 hour, or until fork tender.
In a skillet over medium-low heat, add the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil and the onion. Cook until the onion caramelizes, about 20 minutes. Add the sweet potatoes and beets and cook another 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the thyme and stir. Serve warm.
