Roasted Beets and Carrots

This week has been difficult.  I always wonder if I should continue this culinary journey. As of now both the catering scene and chef instruction are ultra slow.  But, it is time to get out of this funk.  I must cook and carry on! So that’s exactly what I did.

Yesterday was Easter, and guess who was the chef this year, you guessed correctly, it was yours truly.  This year I wanted to lighten up dinner, but still have bold flavors and loads of color. Since I’ve found some gorgeous organic produce, I figured hey this will be perfect.  This dish has beautiful golden beets, vibrant carrots, and is topped with caraway seeds.

Let’s get into this recipe.
