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.
- 3 medium red beets
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Rinse and scrub away any grit from the beets. Peel them and then chop them into 1/2 inch pieces.
- Toss the beets with oil, salt, and pepper and spread out on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
- Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Halfway through baking, toss the beets once to make sure they get cooked on both sides.
- Remove beets from the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.
