2 sweet potatoes, cooked

3 cloves garlic, chopped

If you don’t have any leftover cooked potatoes, use raw potatoes.  Cut sweet and white potatoes in small squares approximately the same size as the beets. Toss in olive oil, 2 cloves of garlic sprinkle with salt, pepper, Cajun seasoning. Spread out on another baking sheet and bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.  Recipe can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated up to this point.

When you are ready to serve, heat the rest of the oil in a skillet and sauté the onion, add the roasted sweets and white potatoes and stir gently until they are heated through.

Add fresh chopped spinach, stir, turn off the heat and cover to keep warm

Lastly, heat the beets in a separate pan so they don’t bleed too much.  When the beets are hot add to rest of mix and turn out into a serving platter and sprinkle top with the chopped parsley.
