photo by mightyro_cooking4u
- Ready In:
- 1hr 2mins
- Wash beets and remove any green portion from the stem area, but leave the top in tact, clean root end and trim but not too close to the bulb portion of the beet.
- Wrap each beet in foil and roast in a 400 degree oven for approximately 1 hour (depending on the size of the beets). Test for doneness by inserting a paring knife into the beet.
- Remove from oven and let stand for a few minutes. Unwrap, and use a paring knife to gently peel the skin away.
- Cut into pieces and drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper.

This was my first time roasting beets, and I chose this recipe based on its simple method/simple ingredients. It worked very well on my tiny beets. I made packets of 2-3 tiny beets, and roasted the packets for about 35 minutes. <br/><br/>Then I opened the packets, cooled the beets, and then attempted to peel the beets. I ended up having to cut the peel off with a paring knife, which was messy and wasteful, alas. <br/><br/>I read elsewhere that peeling beets while they are warm makes them much easier to peel, and will try that next time.<br/><br/>In the meantime--these were great! Thank you for posting.

My children laugh at my public name, but I truly couldn't come up with a name for me! Anyway, I am a married mom of 4. I have always liked to cook, but I have never been a recipe kind of gal, instead I have always just made things up as I went (unless it was a baked good). Usually things turn out really well, but my daughters are now late teens early 20's and want me to tell them how to make things, this is difficult when every time you make something it changes. This is how I joined RecipeZaar, I figured if I could begin to post recipes to the site then they could just go online and find my recipes without having to ask. I have also learned that it does save time to follow recipes, I especially enjoy Rachael Ray, even when I thinnk something sounds a little odd 9 times out of 10 it turns out wonderful. As I write I have a pot of stoup simmering waiting for dinner to come! My son has his "fan favs", with the girls mostly gone away to school now its fun to put food in front of him and watch him and his dad fight over it!
