Oven Roasted Sweets and Beets
Oven Roasted Sweets and Beets, so sweet and delicious!
Our family loves sweet potatoes. They’re super healthy and quite affordable. Sweet potatoes are one of the clean 15, but we still purchase them organic. Combine your sweet potatoes with fresh beets and you have a tasty treat! We love to cut both into bite size pieces and roast them in the oven. I do about 5-6 sweet potatoes and 2-3 beets on average per week. We use them as a side with dinner, to top our salad or even mash them up like mashed potatoes! I like them cold or warm. If you like them toasty just place them bake into the oven before enjoying.
There’s many different varieties of sweet potatoes.. Read all about Sweet Potatoes and all about Beets on Know Your Produce
Beets are tons of fun when it comes to coloring food naturally. You can use it to make juices pink or even cakes red like red velvet cake. Our family gobbles up our beet potato salad with eggs, it’s a pretty pink potato salad.
As soon as I start to cut up the beets you can smell their earthy smell. I LOVE that smell. My daughter is a big fan of beets. She loves them juiced with a little kale and orange juice. Super healthy and nutritious! When I make Oven Roasted Sweets and Beets she could eat a plate full of them!
I like to serve them to her with some homemade chicken nuggets and broccoli. Believe it or not, it’s one of her favorite meals! They’re tasty on their own, but you could easily dip them into a bit of ketchup, just like you would with french fries. Speaking of fries, you could also cut these into french fries and enjoy them that way as well. There’s no wrong way to enjoy your sweet potatoes and beets.

I made these as a side dish for our Valentines Day dinner and my kids loved them. I don’t usually buy beets but I will be making this again soon.
Are there regular potatoes in this dish along with the sweets and beets? Wondering what the white vegetable is.
There is an white veg shown what is that? It’s not listed…
White sweet potatoes!
This is so good! I’m bringing it to Easter dinner because it’s pretty, tasty, easy to make, and healthy.
These were really delicious! I cut the Cayenne pepper in half because my kids were gonna eat some (and of course it was still too spicy for them but I liked it!). I was wondering though, my sweet potatoes were cooked too much, like they were just little squares of mush, and I roasted for 40 minutes, tossing halfway. I think 30 mins would have been enough, although I doubt my beets would have been done then. Are there different kinds of sweet potatoes that cook faster or slower? Maybe I got a yam accidentally? I did have more beets than potatoes. Maybe that’s why? Thanks!
Hi Laura, I’m glad you enjoyed your veggies! I’m not sure why the sweet potatoes cooked so quickly, but a remedy for that next time could be to cut your sweet potatoes slightly larger, and the beets slightly smaller.
This is a new family favorite! It will be on our Thanksgiving table for sure!
So happy to hear it! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Aloha ladies! I just found out I am going to be a grandmother in 6 months so I am starting early with the lifestyle change. Made this one with betts, sweet potato and Okinawa sweet potato (purple). I think the rainbow of color would draw any little one to this dish!!!
Congratulations! Thanks for sharing!
