In the past year, beets have become a staple in our diet and in our garden. When we want a pretty simple dinner, we pick some beets, roast them, slice them, and serve them with a salad.
Simple Roast Beets
1/4 cup orange juice
Fresh herbs: bay leaves, rosemary, thyme, oregano; minced
1 tsp salt
freshly ground pepper
Coat beets with olive oil. Place in baking dish. Add orange juice and fresh herbs. Roast at 425 for 45 minutes or until tender. Using a paper towel, peel skin away from beets. Chop into desired shape and cool.
