Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Place beets in one side of a shallow roasting pan. Place parsnips and fennel in opposite side of pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with caraway seeds, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Stir to coat, keeping beets separate from other vegetables. Roast in preheated oven 40 to 45 minutes or until vegetables are lightly browned and tender, stirring once or twice.
Prepare Warm Caraway Vinaigrette. In a serving bowl, toss roasted vegetables with vinaigrette. Serve immediately with sea salt, if desired. Makes 6 side-dish servings.
