Thyme and Sage Roasted Beets and Parsnips

There’s nothing like fresh roasted vegetables.

IMG_3128Both beets and parsnips have a unique and distinguished flavor – beets taste like harvesting vegetables in the garden on a balmy summer morning, parsnips like sipping lemonade on the wraparound porch as the sun sets. When they’re put together with olive oil and the springy flavors of thyme and sage, nothing can get you closer to summer. Which is just what I need right about now.
