Move over, plain old french fries! Here, we've used an array of root vegetables to make the most of the fall bounty, but feel free to pick and choose which veggies you want to include. Separate the roots for a colour-blocked effect; or, if you want to mix them, toss them together—just wait until they're cooked, otherwise the beets will stain the other veggies.
