Market fresh beets roasted to perfection.
3 Tbsp good olive oil
1 ½ tsp fresh thyme leaves, minced
2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp raspberry vinegar
Juice of 1 large orange
1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
2. Remove the tops and the roots of the beets and peel each one with a vegetable peeler. Cut the beets in 1 1/2-inch chunks. (Small beets can be halved, medium ones cut in quarters, and large beets cut in eighths.)
3. Place the cut beets on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil, thyme leaves, salt, and pepper. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, turning once or twice with a spatula, until the beets are tender. Remove from the oven and immediately toss with the vinegar and orange juice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve warm.
