Ingredients

1 pound (3 to 4 medium) beets
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Rinse or scrub fresh vegetables under running water before preparing.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  4. Scrub beets under running water using a clean vegetable brush.
  5. Trim the stem and root ends of each beet to about one inch. Place the beets on a piece of foil, drizzle with oil and seal edges closed. Foil keeps the beets moist and makes clean-up easy.
  6. Place the beets on a baking sheet. Roast for 45 to 60 minutes until they can be pierced to the center with a dull knife. Open foil carefully when testing for doneness.
  7. When beets are cool enough to handle, slice off ends and remove skin, if desired.
  8. Season with salt and pepper. Serve now or use in another recipe.
  9. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • Try adding other seasonings such as thyme or cumin.
