  • 1 Bunch Beets


  • Preheat oven to 400 Degrees. Slice tops off of the beets and wrap them in tinfoil. For extra credit you can even season them with some salt and pepper.
  • Place them in the oven and roast for 1 hour or until you can pierce the beets all the way through easily with a knife.
  • Using a paper towel, rub the outside of the beets and the skin will slide off easily.


Equipment: Tinfoil, Oven, Knife
* You don't even have to scrub the beets since you are sleuthing off the skin after they are done cooking.
** Now you have perfectly tender roasted beets that will last for two weeks in the fridge.
