Roasted Beets

Looking for an easy and healthy side dish?  Try roasted beets !!  I never really liked beets, until I tried them roasted…  I am sure you will like this quick and easy recipe too (except for the stained hands – you may want to wear gloves while peeling the skins)

Ingredients:

6 – 8 Beets, scrubbed and trimmed

Kosher salt

Costco Organic no salt seasoning (or use any blend of various herbs/spices)

Basic vinaigrette (1/4 cup grape seed oil, 1 tsp of balsamic vinegar,  1 tsp of apple cider vinegar, dash of salt and sugar)

Garnishes:

Tzatziki sauce (I cheated – used store bought from Costco)

Spring mix lettuce leaves

Pomegranate seeds

Method:

1) Place beets in foil squares individually.  Sprinkle each beet with a little kosher salt, and wrap each beet in foil.

2) Bake at 425 for about 45 minutes.   Let beets cool, then peel off the skins.

Serving Options:

~ Slice the beets and place on a serving dish.  Sprinkle a little seasoning , and pour some vinaigrette over the beets.  Garnish with pomegranate seeds (top picture)

~ Or, you can dice them up and mix with the vinaigrette; serve over greens and top with tzatziki sauce (bottom picture)
