I’ve wanted to try roasting beets for a while now. I asked my husband to pick some up at the Farmer’s Market by his office.
A quick and easy recipe for roasting beets I found online:
Wash and peel beets, cutting them into bite sized chunks to use in a salad
Mix 2 tablespoons olive oil and one teaspoon thyme and toss together with beets
Place beets on a foil lined roasting tray and roast at 425 degrees uncovered for 20 minutes.
When this came out of the oven and cooled a bit, my husband and I were eating them like candy. Wonderfully sweet. I am set for a few days worth of salads with additions from the Farmer’s Market, including these luscious beets.
Beets are rich in Folate, Manganese, and Potassium. If you cook and eat the green tops, you get a dose of Beta-Carotene and Iron.
