Roasted Beets Recipe Follow Me on Pinterest

Beets are one of my ALL time favorite veggies. I’m sure my family finds this very amusing that I say this now, because up until about two years ago, I couldn’t stand beets. I have no idea what changed, but now I am a huge fan and I eat them every time I can!

One of the things I always say is that we should eat for color. Try to eat a wide range of colors in our fruits and veggies. And, you can’t get more vibrant than beets! I will be discussing beets in my July newsletter, which will come out soon.

For now, you can find beets all over the place, from your local farmers market to your grocery store. They are in season right now and you can find both the vibrant red and the golden yellow beets. Both are delicious raw or cooked.

To roast your beets, simple wash the beets (you can use a soft vegetable brush on the skin if needed) and trim the tops 1-2 inches above the root. Place in a glass baking dish, sprinkle with coconut oil, and a dash of salt, and roast at 350 for 20-60 minutes.

Once they are roasted, place in cold water to cool slightly and then gently peel the skins off. They should slip off easily. I love roasted beets with butter and lemon juice. I will often make a big batch and eat them for several days. It’s always best to eat in season, so go get some beets and enjoy!

  1. I love beets too! One of my co-workers just gave me a bunch the other day and I can’y wait to eat them.

  2. This sounds so much easier than the other recipes I’ve seen for roasting beets, nice job!

    (Though I can’t have them right now, too much sugar, and even fermented beets are too sweet.)

    • Roasting beets is so easy! Love them! It’s so funny, because I really did detest beets up until a year or two ago. Not sure what changed!
