Five Spice Roasted Vegetables

Roasted fall vegetables are made perfectly tender and lightly caramalized with a hint of Chinese five spice to give them that extra something. It's a delicious fall side dish.



    Roasting vegetables is one of my favorite way to fix them all year long. Roasting brings out their natural sweetness and makes them so delicious. This mix of naturally sweet carrots, beets and squash marries so nicely with the five spice.  It is a side dish worthy of a place on your dinner plate.
