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.

How decadent these beets turned out to be. So amazingly full of flavor. I followed the recipe verbadum and am not sorry - they truly were the star of the meal. Thanks Bergy.
