This recipe will teach you all you need to know about Roasted Beets.
Roasting beets is easy. If you can roast potatoes, then you can roast beets. It’s effortless! All you have to do is heat the oven, scrub the beets, place them in a covered dish (or wrap in foil), then bake until tender.
Choose beets that are roughly the same size so they’ll finish cooking at the same time. There’s no need to peel the beets before they’re roasted, it’s much easier to peel them after. Also, roasting beets in a covered roasting pan helps protect the beets from drying out, which helps the skins easily slip off.
Serve roasted beets warm or cold, or even added to a salad or sandwich!
