DIRECTIONS

  • Peel the red beets and cut them into 1/2 cm (about 1/4 inch) thick slices. (Warning: This will stain your hands pretty good. So either you wear gloves or be prepared to scrub your hands afterwards.)
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F / 190°C.
  • Place two large pieces of parchment paper on top of each other on a baking sheet. Place the beet slices on the bottom parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, and the honey. Mix until everything is combined. Then add the thyme. It is up to you how much thyme you want to use(the author uses 2 tbls.). Then add some salt and pepper.
  • Pour the sauce over the red beets and cover it with the top parchment paper by twisting the ends together like a bonbon.
  • Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake the red beets for about 45 minutes or longer if you want them softer.
  • Serve warm or cold.
  • Guten Appetit!
