Rosemary Roasted Vegetables

I experienced such a delightful surprise this past Sunday as I sliced into a purple carrot – the inside was yellow! Just one of the reasons why I love rainbow carrots – the beautiful vibrant colors.

Inspired, I grabbed a bright purple beet. And a few mushrooms (just because I love them) – and decided to give them a roast!

The end-product was an easy, quick, and delicious side dish. Or breakfast :) – one of my new favorites!  This recipe can easily be doubled to feed a family of four.
