Roasted Tricolored Beets

Since I was at the market on Saturday and could not resist the bounty of beets, here’s a bonus recipe this week using the classic, watermelon and golden beets that turns the jewel-like veggies into nature’s candy.

All I did was simply roast them with the same spices I used for the pickling with two changes that were simpler than saying, “Can you beat that?!”

Serve them warm as a side with dinner, or on a salad like I did with spinach and cottage cheese garnished with fresh herbs.

Serves 4

    3 cups of beets cut up into 1/4 in” strips
    1 tsp. minced garlic
    1 tbs. olive oil
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. black peppercorns, fennel seeds and coriander seeds
    1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
    3/4 tsp. chopped fresh dill
    1 tsp. basalmic vinegar

  1. Pre-heat the oven at 375 F
  2. Place all the ingredients on the sheet pan and mix to coat the beets in all the spices and oil
  3. Roast for about 20-25 minutes until they’re fork tender
  4. Remove from the oven and transfer to a glass container and sprinkle some fresh dill and drizzle 1/2 tsp. of basalmic vinegar
