• 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
• Salt & Pepper to Taste
• 2 Tbsp Vegan Butter
• 3 Tbsp Maple Syrup

Garnish
• 3 Tbsp (84 g) Vegan Feta Cheese
• ½ Tbsp Chopped Cilantro

Preparation:

1. Preheat oven to 425°F/220°C and move the rack to the middle position.

2. Cut the beets and carrots into pieces that are roughly the same size and place the pieces on a large baking sheet.

3. Drizzle the olive oil onto the beets and carrots and add salt & pepper. Toss until they’re coated. Spread them out in an even layer.
