  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Toss beets with 1½ teaspoons oil and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Transfer to the prepared pan. Roast, stirring once halfway, until tender, 30 to 35 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, toast caraway seeds in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add 1½ teaspoons oil, carrot and shallot to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until very soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in vinegar and remove from heat. Stir into the caraway seeds and slowly whisk in the remaining 3 tablespoons oil, ⅛ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

Used Black Truffle Olive Oil and Black Truffle Salt. Substituted red wine for vinegar. Used golden beets. Exceptionally good recipe.
