How To Roast Beets

From Jeanette's Healthy Living

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of beets with greens
  • water

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut greens off of beets and reserve for later. Wash and trim beets, leaving a bit of the ends attached.
  3. Place beets in a shallow pie pan with 1/4" inch of water.
  4. Cover pan with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake 40-60 minutes, until a knife pieces the beets easily. Roasting time depends on the size of the beets. I had small and medium size beets, and ended up baking them for 60 minutes.
  6. Remove beets from oven and let cool.
  7. Skin will peel off beets easily, either using a paring knife to gently scrape the skin off, or using your fingers.
