Yes, they turn my teeth red, but I absolutely adore beets. They are packed with nutrition and they are super easy to prepare.

Things You Will Need


Aluminum Foil

Baking Dish

Preheated Oven (250 degrees)

Step 1

Tear off sheets of aluminum foil large enough to securely cover your beet. You will want to make sure each beet is fuly covered as they will get quite juicy. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees.

Step 2

Wash and trim the foliage off the beets. You can chop up some stems and roast it with your beets as well. Wrap each beet securly with foil. Place on a baking dish and place in the oven. The beets are done when they are fork tender. Small beets around 2-3 inches in diameter will take about 20 minutes to cook.

Step 3

After the beets are cooled. Remove the foil and peel with the back of a knife. The skin should come off very easily. Cut up the beets and season with salt and pepper. Serve. I hope you enjoyed this simple recipe. The beets are fantastic eaten plain, but you can also dress them with a little sesame oil and soy sauce, olive oil and rosemary, or even ranch.

Tips & Warnings

The beet juice will stain anything any porus surface. Make sure you protect cooking surfaces, clothing, and wear gloves if your concerned about staining your hands. The color will stain your skin, but will susually wash off in a day or so.
