If you’ve never cooked beets before, I promise you it’s so easy you’ll wonder why you’ve never done it before. In a pinch, canned beets will do. But I promise you that once you start roasting your own, you’ll appreciate how much sweeter and flavorful they are.
Ready? Follow these four easy steps:
- Preheat your oven to 450F.
- Trim tops off beets, wrap in foil and place on a baking sheet.
- Cook for an hour and then test to see if they’re ready by opening the foil and inserting in a sharp paring knife.
- Peel with a paper towel.
Once the beets are cooked you can do all sorts of things with them like drizzle them with olive oil and vinegar or add to a salad. Or if you’re like me, you’ll eat them plain because, yeah, I like beets.
