How do I use my Perfect Roasted Beets?

Great question! Use them on salads, puree them for soups. Make beet pasta sauces.

Sprinkle with some salt & pepper and eat them as is. Create an million of your own recipes with them!

All you need to do is pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Trim the stems off of your beets (get as many colors as you can!) and wrap each beet in tin foil. Bake about 45 minutes or until they are nice & tender.

Peel the beets when they are done cooking.

  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to use. A few days.

I’ve always been sort of afraid of beets because I’ve only known them as pickled, which I did not care for. I may need to try them roasted, though. And one of the recipes you linked looks like it could be quite good and worth a try.

Yes, the pickled beet is a way different deal than the roasted ones. Give them a whirl & see what you think!

Great post — I roast beets the same way. Love to have them in the fridge to throw on a quick salad. Sometimes I need to put a bit of water in the foil packets or the sugars/juices burn.

I just LOVE that first photo!

I love beets too! Just sprinkle a little salt, squeeze lemon on it and have one of my favorite snacks. The colors are just amazing, we only have the reddish one here. Pinning!

OMG I just tried roasting beets for the first time last month. I don’t know how I had lived for so long before trying to roast them on my own! Also, love your photos!
