You can also use them in unexpected ways, like blending them with tahini to make a beet hummus or using them in baked goods like chocolate cake or chocolate cupcakes. You can put them in pesto or pasta sauce too - check out this vegan beet pesto pasta.

Tips for Making Roasted Beets

  • Make sure to rinse your beets and give them a good scrub before peeling them. Beets are usually gritty and need to be cleaned before being cut.
  • The cooked beets will keep for four days in the refrigerator. They are a great option for meal prepping.
