Heat oven to 400°F. Scatter carrots, onion wedges and shallots in 15 x 10-inch jelly roll pan. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle thyme, salt and pepper over vegetables; toss to coat.
Roast, uncovered, in oven 15 minutes. Add garlic to vegetables; toss well. Return to oven and continue roasting 10 minutes. Add beets; return to oven and roast until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
