Cinnamon Apple Roasted Veggies

I know, I know, it sounds strange mixing something that's usually associated with dessert in with your veggies but trust me, in this case it works! If you're looking for an interesting and out of the ordinary Thanksgiving side dish this year, you will find it right here.

It's not too sweet and not too savoury...its a perfect combination of both and I think it may even get the kiddies to happily eat their veggies. And it's easy to make too!
Ingredients:

3 beets, peeled and cut into large chunks
5 large carrots, sliced into 1 inch pieces
6 shallots, peeled and sliced in half
3 apples (any type) peeled, cored and sliced thick
2 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs fresh chopped parsley
1 Tbs raw sugar
2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon 
Pinch of black pepper
Preheat oven to 400f/200c. Toss the beets, carrots and shallots in the olive oil in a large bowl. Mix the sugar, salt, cinnamon and pepper in a small bowl then sprinkle onto the beets, carrots and shallots and toss again. Sprinkle mixture with the chopped parsley and place into the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, add in the apple slices, toss and return to oven for 20 more minutes. Now, remove and give everything a good toss before serving (I know, there's a lot of tossing involved haha). Enjoy!
