Roasted Beets

Let’s take a walk on the healthier side, shall we?

I’ve been having a real love affair with beets of late.  They’re kinda sweet, and taste a little like dirt.  In the very best way, of course.

Much like pretty much all vegetables, they’re great when roasted.

You may want to consider wearing latex gloves while peeling and chopping the beets.  They can stain your skin, even if you wash up right after handling them.

You’ll need:

  • 6-8 medium sized beets, peeled and cut into roughly bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs honey
  • salt
  • pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.  Set aside.

Put the cut beets, olive oil, honey, salt, and pepper into a zip top bag.  Toss everything around until the beets are well-coated.

Spread the beets on the prepared baking sheet in an even layer.  Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until the beets are fork tender.

Eat ’em up.
