Ras el Hanout is a spice blend that can be found in the spice section of many grocery stores and Middle-Eastern specialty shops. To make your own, mix together equal parts of cardamom, ginger, allspice, cinnamon, paprika, coriander, cumin, nutmeg, and turmeric. Add a pinch of cloves and black pepper at the end. This spice blend is flexible, so don’t worry if you’re missing a few spices.

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Place carrots, onion wedges and beet quarters in two non-stick roasting pans in one layer. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Sprinkle the Ras el Hanout spice blend evenly over the vege-tables. Drizzle the extra-virgin olive oil over the seasoned vegetables.
  4. Roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until vegetables are cooked through.
  5. Let vegetables cool for 5 minutes before serving.
