March to a Different Beet: Food Idea
Roasted beets must be one of the easiest things to do (or not do, as the case may be) and the way they smell indicates to me that there is an overload of vitamins stored up in those little balls!
Slice off the greens - you can wash and slice them up and they're very delicious in a salad - and wash the beets. Dry them off and wrap each one well in tinfoil and place on a baking sheet. Bake the beets on 350 degrees for about an hour and 20 minutes. Carefully open the foil packets and let cool. With a knife, carefully peel back the skins and toss them. Slice the beets and serve with crumbled soft goat cheese and a ripe tomato. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle crushed sea salt on top and lightly drizzle some balsamic vinegar as a final touch.
The result is wonderful and so very healthy. You feel terrific about eating them - and really, beets are an incredible food!
