A gorgeous display of Cajun spiced and roasted beets, sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnips, and red onions. Try it with our Drunken Shrimp Scampi.



  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 large beets, peeled and cubed
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and cut into diagonal slices
  • 2 large parsnips, peeled and cut into diagonal slices
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large red onion, cut into thick half-moons
  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt-Free Cajun Seasoning, divided
  • Salt, to taste after cooking


  1. Place the oven racks in the top two positions and preheat oven to 425 degrees F. If both baking pans will fit on one rack, use the top position.
  2. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Prep the vegetables, leaving beets until last. Place the carrots, parsnips, sweet potato, and half the onion into a large bowl, then placed the beets and other half onion in another bowl.
  4. Drizzle the mixed vegetables with 1 1/2 tablespoons oil and add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon to the beets. Toss to coat each bowl of vegetables evenly.
  5. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of Salt-Free Cajun Seasoning over the mixed vegetables, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon over the beets. Stir both to distribute seasoning evenly.
  6. Place the mixed vegetables on one baking sheet in a single layer and repeat with the beets on the other baking sheet. This will prevent the beets from turning everything pink.
  7. Roast for 30-40 minutes, flipping the vegetables and rotating (if on two racks) or turning (if sharing a rack) the trays half way through.
  8. Remove from oven when vegetables are tender and salt to taste. Sprinkle with additional seasoning, if desired. The beets may take a few minutes longer than the mixed vegetable tray.


  • Serve with a dollop of plain coconut yogurt (vegan option) or Greek yogurt (non-vegan option) to add a cool and creamy break from the heat of the Cajun spices.
