Recipe Notes

Roasting is an essential technique in cooking great healthy food. The most important thing is that the roasting pan be large enough so that the food doesn’t touch. If you use too small a pan, the food will steam and not have that crispy outside the makes roasted food so great.

"The beet is the most intense of vegetables. The radish, admittedly, is more feverish, but the fire of the radish is a cold fire, the fire of discontent, not of passion. Tomatoes are lusty enough, yet there runs through tomatoes an undercurrent of frivolity. Beets are deadly serious."
