Roasted Beets and Sweets

From All Roasted Beets and Sweets

I LOVE this roasted beets and sweets recipe so much that I have to share with all of you. It has all the earmarks of being perfect for those with sickle cell, great root vegetables, easy to prepare, rich in thiocyanate. On top of that, it appeases both your sweet and salty palates, and gives you something to do with all those beets you bought. If you have the AllRecipes app, you can check it out HERE.
