Let’s take a walk on the healthier side with these simple roasted beets, shall we?
I’ve been having a real love affair with beets of late. They’re kinda sweet, and very earthy. They taste a little like dirt. In the very best way, of course.
And much like basically all vegetables, they’re great when roasted.
- 6-8 medium-sized beets, peeled and cut into roughly bite-sized pieces
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1 tbs honey
- salt, to taste
- pepper, to taste
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.
Note: 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.
