How to roast beets 

We love roasting beets all year long. You can roast, keep in the fridge and add to salads, eat plain, make an appetizer with the beets and goat cheese. So many options!

You will want to roast at a hight heat. We do ours at 400 degrees.

Peeled technique

Place the peeled beet with the garlic in a baking pan. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and toss until coated. Then pop in the oven and bake for 45 minutes or until roasted. Remove from oven and let it cool.

Unpeeled technique 

Place washed beets in foil. Trim the tops as well. Rub olive oil, salt and pepper onto beets. Fold up in foil and roast for 45 minutes at 400 degrees.
