Oven Roasted Beets

Yes, I know what you are thinking, Beets, really...but, let me assure you that once you make and taste this recipe for Oven Roasted Beets, you are going to change you mind. 

My husband likes to make healthy smoothies, and beets is always one of those veggies he likes to include.  However, I have never really been a fan of the taste.  I find that beets taste like dirt..grainy and just not appetizing.

I had been watching a cooking show and they mentioned that roasted beets were delicious. Roasting them will bring out the sweetness, and taste amazing.  So I decided to make them.  Why not, they are good for you and I figure there are not many veggies that I don't like, so let me just try it and see.

I roasted the beets and I was really surprised.  The roasted beets have a similar taste to corn, fresh corn.  At least that's what it tastes like to me.  The beets turned out sweet and not grainy.  I will make this again for sure.

I think my husband preferred them in his healthy drinks.  I prefer it this way.


1 pound of beets, greens trimmed and washed
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp of sea salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F

Coat the beets with 2 tbsp of olive oil and wrap with foil.  Place beets in a small roasting pan and bake until tender when pierced with a fork, about 45 minutes.

Unwrap the beets and let cool for 10 minutes.  Slip off the skins with a pairing knife.  Cut them into quarters and toss with the remaining olive oil, salt, pepper and lemon juice.  Serve warm with your favorite protein.  Enjoy!
