Carrots and cauliflower are tossed with thyme, parsley and lemon zest in addition to salt, pepper and olive oil. The addition of walnuts gives a great crunchy bite.

Sweet and sugary beets taste amazing when they're roasted. It can take a bit of time -- these babies need about an hour in the oven -- but once they're peeled and served, you'll know the wait was well worth it. Kelsey's salad combines the roasted beets with dressed greens, crunchy pear slices and creamy goat cheese. Sprinkle with sliced, toasted almonds.
