Honey Roasted Root Vegetables

 I have fallen in love with this dish because it is so simple and easy to make. Just toss the root veggies in the clay pot and coat them with honey. Then roast them in the oven at 425 degrees for about 45 minutes to an hour. It doesn't really matter which veggies you are roasting, but I like to stick with ones on the sweet side. I usually roast yams, carrots, sweet potatoes and beets together. The beats give everything a wonderful deep red and orange color.  The honey from the farmers market is so pure it creates a purely unique taste when mixed in with the veggies. 

The reason this dish works so well, in my opinion, is the clay pot. Its a small mexican bean pot handmade in Todos Santos, Mexico. I brought this pot home with me from my trip, which I previously blogged about in January and December. Roasting anything in this pot just seems like magic.
