KISS Beets

What you need: 

2 fresh beets, peeled and chopped bite sized
olive oil, as needed
sea salt and pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Put beets on prepared baking sheet.
2. Lightly coat beets with olive oil, and mix with hands to coat all the pieces. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.
3. Bake for 30 minutes; check half way through to mix.
Enjoy! These are really good as leftovers too. I recently joined a CSA and have never cooked beets, or eaten beets that I can remember. So, after trying a few recipes that didn't really 'wow' me, I tried this since it works great for other veggies. It really brings out the great natural flavor in a mellow way.

I didn't know what to do with my fresh beets and thought I'd give this simple recipe a try. It turned out great! I added some chopped yellow bell pepper and a zucchini, tossed everything with some olive oil, garlic powder and herbes de Provence, and the result was delicious, full of flavor and color. Thanks for sharing!


:o WOW! I had no idea beets were this delicious! My dad and I were stunned! I thought I liked pickled beets, but this is a whole new level.
