Roasted Beets

I gave you a recipe for a great sandwich (recipe HERE) with beets, but I forgot to tell you how to cook the beets.  Don’t buy store bought ones, they just don’t measure up to freshly cooked ones.  I thought beets were hard to cook, but they are rather simple.  Pretty much just roast them in the oven, peel them with your hands, and enjoy!  Follow my recipe for great tasting beets!

Preheat oven to 375

Cut top and bottoms of beets off

Cut larger beets in half

Place in tin foil

Uncooked Beets

Once all of the beets are placed in tin foil, drizzle with olive oil

Close tin foil to make packet

Roast in the oven for 45-60 minutes depending on thickness of beets

Open the tin foil packets and let beets cool

When cool to the touch, lightly coat hands with olive oil and peel beet skin with knife

Don’t be scared, your hands will become beet red, but coating them with olive oil ensures that the color won’t stain your hands.

Cooked and Peeled Beets

To enjoy, serve sliced on salads, in sandwiches, or just toss them with a bit of butter and some spices!
