Balsamic roasted beets and cauliflower

With fall on the horizon, we’re seeing more broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and beets at the markets, and this week we cooked some of them up. This is a simple preparation where the balsamic vinegar cooks down to a semi-sweet glaze, and also counteracts some of the beets’ earthiness. And of course, if you can get your hands on some pretty vegetables, it makes the end result that much better!

Balsamic Roasted Beets with Cauliflower

1 bunch beets, diced
1 medium head cauliflower, cut into small florets
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper
Fresh thyme and rosemary (or whatever you’ve got lying around)

Combine everything in a large bowl, mixing to ensure everything’s pretty well coated.

Place in a large baking dish, and bake for 50-60 minutes at 375 F, testing for tenderness and adjusting cook time accordingly.
