Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line baking sheet with parchment paper {I used a glass dish; however, clean-up would have been much easier had I followed my own directions}.
  2. Cut pears, carrots, and beets into quarter-sized pieces and place on the baking sheet. Roast until fork tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and let cook slightly before transferring to a blender or food processor. Add the coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of the water.
  4. Blend on pulse until you reach the consistency you desire. Add additional water if necessary for a smoother puree.
  5. Allow to cool slightly before serving/storing
