One-Handed Sweet & Spicy Roasted Beets and Carrots

 It has been difficult trying to process and eat all of the produce that I bought before I broke my hand.  Some of it, I just can't do myself and my hubby has been busy with his 2 new jobs.  He has helped me with some things, but we just can't keep up with everything.

I was able to scrub and cut these beets by myself.  And the key for me to be able to cook anything in the oven right now is using bakeware that is small enough for me to handle with only one hand.

Here's a tip for cutting the beets with one hand:  A shorter knife is easier to handle and gives you more leverage.  I didn't worry about peeling them, the skins get soft enough during cooking.
I used some baby carrots that we also needed to use up.  I cut those in half to make them easier to eat with one hand.  My left hand is still awkward at getting food to my mouth.

Once the beets and carrots were cut, I placed them into my small bakeware and poured just enough beef broth in to cover the bottom of the dish.  I cut one Tablespoon of butter into small pieces and sprinkled it on top of the veggies.

The next step was to drizzle honey on the veggies.  Then I sprinkled garlic powder and crushed red pepper on.

I baked the beets and carrots in a 400 degree oven for 50 minutes, stirring halfway through.

They came out delicious!!  The only thing that could have made them better is a little bit of salt, since I didn't add any. 

What's your favorite way to eat beets?
