Roasted Yellow Beets with Balsamic Glaze
The photo shows how to serve the beets for 4 people. The plate featured shows one beet sliced. "Beets are delicious on their own, or with nuts, citrus segments (blood oranges would be lovely) and many soft cheeses."
- 2 medium sized yellow beets with greens attached
- 2 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil + more when serving
- Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- Balsamic glaze
- Serve with fresh greens
Place rack in middle of oven and preheat oven to 375° F.
Rinse and dry your beets and trim off the leafy tops. Place each beet on a sheet of foil and drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil, then wrap each beet in the aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Roast until tender, for about 1 hour.
Remove from the oven and let cool. When cool enough to handle, using a spoon, gently scrape the skin off and cut them crosswise into thin slices. Place on a platter, season with salt and pepper, drizzle some more extra virgin olive oil and the balsamic glaze. Serve with fresh greens.
