Ingredients

  • 2 lbs small beets
  • 1 bunch (1 lb/450 g) carrots
  • 1 lb shallots peeled
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Method

Trim off any beet leaves. Wrap beets in foil; bake in 400ºF (200ºC) oven until easily pierced with knife, about 1-1/4 hours. Let cool enough to handle; peel off skins. Starting at top end and without cutting all the way through, cut beets into scant 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices, leaving root end intact.

Meanwhile, trim off tops and peel carrots; cut crosswise into thirds. On baking sheet, toss together beets, carrots, shallots, oil, salt and pepper. Bake on bottom rack of 400ºF (200ºC) oven, stirring once, until carrots and shallots are golden and beets are fork-tender, about 30 minutes.

Sprinkle vegetables with 1 tbsp of the dill, lemon zest and lemon juice; toss to coat. Transfer to serving dish; sprinkle with remaining dill.
