Beets and potatoes in seasonal heart shapes – so cute, so fun, so delicious!
I don’t know about you, but I've always loved Valentine’s Day.
I know people either hate it or love it, but for some reason, boyfriend or no boyfriend, I have always considered it a special day.
I've forever loved creating fun Valentine’s Day treats. My younger sister (she's only 6) and I always make loads of pink cupcakes and heart-shaped sugar cookies – topped with pink frosting, of course.
Today though, I'm going to show you a savory treat for heart day! Exciting, right?!
I made us some super simple and crazy delicious heart-shaped roasted beets and potatoes. These are the perfect side dish for your special Valentine’s Day meal.
Here's how to make them:
Gather the simple ingredients.
Slice the potatoes and beets.
Using a small heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut the potatoes and beets into hearts.
It's a little messy, but so easy.
Now add them to a bowl and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. If desired, toss in the scraps as well.
Spread them out in a single layer on a sheet pan.
Roast in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until browned and crisp. Flip twice with a spatula during cooking to ensure even browning.
Remove the potatoes from the oven, toss with parsley, season to taste, and serve hot.
What a special savory treat!
