  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 8 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh oregano chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh marjoram chopped
  • 1 tsp salt plus more to taste
  • 3 medium red beets raw, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 medium yellow beets raw, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 turnips peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 sweet potatoes scrubbed and sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • fresh parsley for serving


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Prepare vegetables. Use a mandolin to slice the red and yellow beets, turnips, and sweet potatoes into thin rounds. Take extra care when slicing and mandolins are SHARP. Set vegetables aside.
  • Heat a large 12" cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the butter, garlic, and herbs to the skillet and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and transfer garlic and herb butter mixture to a clean bowl. 
  • Arrange the red and yellow beets, turnips, and sweet potatoes in a spiraling formation, working toward the center of the skillet.
  • Sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan cheese and remaining butter, garlic, and herbs. Drizzle with one tablespoon olive oil and transfer to preheated oven. Roast for 30-35 minutes, or until vegetables are golden and edges are crispy.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped parsley, if desired.


Unless you are a ninja with a knife, you will need a mandolin to get all the vegetables super thinly sliced. There are tons of different options out there. I highly recommend that you read reviews and buy a good one. Also please, PLEASE! Purchase protective gloves (and double up!)- affiliate links.
