Cut the tops off the beets (save, wash, chop for use in other 'greens' dishes)
Wash the beets. Lay them on foil and drizzle handily with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Seal them tightly in the foil package and roast at 375 for about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and leave, sealed until ready to use.
They look sad without their tops or tails... wash them!
Now, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and seal them up, tightly
Ok, into the oven! 375 for about 30 minutes. Oh look. They smell great, are cooked and tender. I'm a big fan so I snuck a slice out of the middle before they were cool enough to handle. Yummy! When they cool down a bit, I run them under warm water to slip their skins off and wash my hands at the same time. If you're quick, you won't wash flavor out of them. Just don't dawdle.
Now, you have beets ready to use, warm or cold in anything!
I sliced them up to go with the sausage and pasta tonight, tomorrow I may put them in a sandwich, I do love a beet sandwich!
