If you are looking for a beautiful, healthy, and delicious appetizer to bring to your next party, why not try beet hummus?
1 medium red beet
1 large clove of garlic, unpeeled
1 can white beans, rinsed and drained
Juice of ½ a lemon (about ½ tablespoon)
¼ cup Olive Oil
½ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Wash the beet and place with garlic clove on a sheet of foil. Pull up the sides of the foil and fold to make a packet, leaving room so the air can circulate inside.
Bake for 45 minutes, or until beet is tender when poked with a knife. Set aside to cool.
Put a plastic bag over your hand and gently remove skin from the beet and garlic (the bag will keep your hand clean).
Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender and puree...

One of the easiest ways to enjoy root vegetables is simply by roasting them in a shallow pan or baking sheet.
1 Sweet Potato
1 Medium Onion
3 Tablespoons Grated Parmesan Cheese
Black Pepper to Taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut vegetables into large chunks.
Place all chopped veggies into a medium bowl and pour oil over the top.
Add Parmesan cheese and black pepper (and any other seasoning you would like) and mix well.
Spread veggies in an even layer over the baking sheet.
Bake for about 1 hour or until tender. Stir occasionally.
