Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Prepare your beets for roasting by washing the beets and cutting off the beet greens. I also cut of the bottom tip of the beet, so they will sit better in the oven, but this is up to you.
  2. Tear off an 8 inch length of aluminum foil and place your cleaned and trimmed beet in the center. Using olive oil, or your favorite oil, drizzle a bit over the top of the beet. You want enough to coat the outside of the beet without having a ton left over. Then lightly sprinkle the oiled beet with salt. Wrap the beet up securely in the foil and place on a baking sheet. (I wrap each beet individually and place them on the same baking sheet.)
  3. Place baking sheet in oven and roast for 30 minutes, or until a fork easily pierces through to the middle. Remove beets from oven and let cool.
  4. Once beets are cool, unwrap them and slide the skin of the beet off by gently rubbing with your fingers. Your fingers will be a little stained after doing this, but it washes off. If you’re prepping these for a dinner party only a few hours away, you may want to wear gloves!
  5. Store peeled beets in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Once you’re ready to serve, simply slice up the beets and serve! They are wonderful on a variety of salads, smoothies, or just eaten plain.
