I have such a good time at Whole Foods in the veggie department. I can rarely make my way through the store without seeing a standout veggie just screaming for me to snap a photo.
Beets. I never thought I liked them. They taste like dirt (to me). BUT… I tried roasting them and WOW! Roasting brings out the sweetness and guess what? No dirt taste 🙂
From what I’ve read, you do not have to peel them (I did), because after they’re roasted the skin will slip right off. If you have a few that are larger than I cut them into chunks so they’re close to the same size.
How I make them…
I give them a good rinse and then peel. Cutting any larger beets into pieces to try to keep them approximately the same size. Put into a bowl with a swirl of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), salt and pepper and toss to coat. Then place on an oiled cookie sheet.
Bake them in a preheated oven at 425℉ for 10-15 minutes or until tender.
Usually you see red beets, but these golden beets really stood out! Give it a try some time!
Catch you back here tomorrow!
