Preparing beets can be messy - use lemon juice to remove the stains that beet juice can leave on your hands, countertop and cutting board. 

Roasted Beets with Honey Balsamic Glaze


Quantity Ingredients
2 large beets, trimmed and peeled (about 1.8 lb/0.8 kg)
2 tbsp olive oil
1/8 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp honey


Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).

Slice peeled and washed beets in half lengthwise; cut into ¼-inch slices.  Place beets in a large mixing bowl; toss with 1 tbsp olive oil and sea salt.  Arrange beets in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Place in the oven the bake until beets are firm, but can easily be pierced with a fork, about 45-55 minutes. 

Meanwhile in small saucepan whisk together 1 tbsp olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey.  Bring to a rolling boil over medium-high heat.  Remove from heat.

When beets are cooked, remove from oven and arrange on a serving dish; drizzle with honey balsamic glaze. Serve warm.
