Beets are such a lovely root vegetable available in a variety of colors. When you bite into this root it ushers in a sweet and earthy goodness. Don’t throw out the green tops (just remove the stems) as they are delicious juiced, sautéed and served as an accompaniment next to a few ounces of protein or piled high on a mound of rice.
1 bunch of beets-rinse and cut off stems with greens
drizzle of olive oil
heavy duty foil
Place washed beets on foil and drizzle with olive oil. Close up the pouch seams tightly, place in a preheated 400 degree oven and bake for 50ish minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool to touch before you peel them.
