    This is such an easy and absolutely delicious recipe! I added a little rosemary when I roasted the veggies, which my husband and I enjoyed. The peppercorn sauce really compliments the beets and sweet potatoes, and I'll definitely be making these fries again!

    I love roasted root vegetables so I did enjoy eating these. I did not get the recipe title being "Fries" as I did not get the texture I have come to associate with traditional fries, no crispy exterior. Rather soft and moist. I used freshly ground mixed peppercorns in the mayonnaise and thought it was good. So although I did enjoy eating these and like the colorful array I did feel slightly disappointed in the expectation of a Fry.
