It's nice to roast the beets for a change! The balsamic vinegar and honey give a slightly sweet & sour taste. Very complimentary to the beet flavor.

If you ever thought beets were boring you need to try this dish. I sustituted quartered onions and skipped the red pepper. The great flavor of baked beets goes well with the other ingredients.
- 8 large beets, peeled and quartered
- 10 shallots, peeled
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄3 cup dry red wine
- 2 teaspoons fresh chopped thyme (or 1/2 teas dried thyme)
- 1 teaspoon hot pepper flakes (or less)
- salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 green onion, chopped
