Ingredients

  • 3 large potatoes, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 3 large beets, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2-4 cloves of garlic, grated
  • A sprinkle of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Steps

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 400°F. Using a small heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut potato and beet slices into hearts and place in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic. If desired, toss in the scraps as well.
  • 2
    Toss until vegetables are well coated, then transfer them to a sheet pan and spread out into a single layer. Roast in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until browned and crisp. Flip twice with a spatula during cooking for even browning.
  • 3
    Remove the mixture from the oven, toss with parsley, season to taste, and serve hot.
