It is easy to love fresh beets. Roasting them seems to enhance their sweet earthy flavor and probably the easiest way to cook beets. I’ve had more people tell me that they don’t like beets. Well, that was until they taste roasted beets. Roasting beets give them a deep, sweet taste. Serve these beets either as a side dish or in a salad.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Wash about 8 small beets well. Slice or chunk them and place in a roasting pan. Add about a tablespoon of olive oil, some kosher salt and pepper and mix well to coat.
Cook about 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out easily. Enjoy!
