  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and add the beets.  Cook for 15 minutes or so until the beets are tender when pierced with a knife. Drain well and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile toss the carrots with just enough avocado oil to coat, and spread out on a sheet pan.  Place in a 400F degree oven and roast for about 25-30 minutes until the carrots are tender.  Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature.
  3. Whisk together the maple syrup, lemon juice, avocado oil, sea salt and pepper.  Toss the vegetables with the mixture in a bowl and add the shallots, parsley, feta and pistachios and toss to combine.
  4. Serve!
