From my friend Christa, who swore this recipe would make me love beets. We shall see.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Stir together lemon juice, cumin seeds, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir in oil and let stand while roasting beets.
  2. Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 425°F.
  3. Tightly wrap beets in a double layer of foil and roast on a baking sheet until tender, 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Cool to warm in foil package, about 20 minutes.
  4. When beets are cool enough to handle, peel them, discarding stems and root ends, then cut into 1/2-inch-wide wedges.
  5. Toss warm beets with dressing. Stir in mint just before serving.
  6. Beets can be roasted and tossed with dressing 4 hours ahead, then kept, covered, at room temperature.
