Roasted Beets
  • 1 bunch of beets
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Step One: CLEAN the beets: remove the tops and the tap roots of the beets.  Scrub them well with water.

Step Two: PREP the beets: Cut the beets into 1 ½ inch chunks. (Small beets can be halved.)

Step Three: SEASON & ROAST the beets. Put the beets on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Roast for 35-40 minutes until beets are tender, stirring the beets with a spatula once or twice during the cooking time.

Step Four: SEASON ADDITIONALLY & ENJOY!  Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper to taste.  Serve warm.

Try sprinkling the cooked beets with balsamic vinegar or orange juice!
