Beet Me!


Found some lonely beets the other day that I had to use.  Didn’t find anything exciting while researching recipes, so decided to just throw some stuff together.

So, first the fun — taking those innocent beets and peeling them.

IMG_2109[1]I hadn’t used my toaster oven for ages so decided to put it to good use since I didn’t have a ton of beets.  Warmed that up to about 425 and then tossed the beets with some olive oil, oregano, basil and a couple other spices.  Covered the toaster oven sheet in foil and put the (quartered) beets on there.

  1. Somehow beets are classic with pistachios – always taste wonderful together. By the way, you can also make a quick salad by grating roasted and peeled beets and then adding a dollop of mayo, squeeze in a clove or two of fresh garlic (through the garlic press) and optionally, some sliced prunes. Can be used as a salad or even as a dip.
