It is easy to love beets. Oven roasting beets seems to enhance their sweet nature. Oven roasting is also the easiest way to cook beets. If you roast them whole the skins will slip right off after cooking.

I used to be one of those people who hated beets, that is until I roasted them. Roasting beets give them a deep, sweet taste that can’t be accomplished in any other fashion. Serve these beets either as a side dish or as part of a salad drizzled with balsamic dressing. Delish!

Here’s what you need:

3 lbs of beets (I used candy candy and yellow) – peel them and diced them
2 tbs oil
2 tsp flaked salt
Freshly ground pepper

Roasted the beets in a 400 degree oven for approx 1 hour. Once cooked, devour. www.monicaskitchen.com
