Beets are good source of folacin, vitamin C, and potassium. They also taste super delicious when you roast them in the oven. This video tutorial demonstrates a simple way to roast beets in your oven and shows a tasty vinaigrette serving method.
An ECO-Friendly way to roast beets is to simply coat the beets with oil & bake in the oven. If you would like to prevent staining your hands with red beet juice then coat your hands in oil too. You may also wrap the beets in foil & bake at 450º for approx: 1 hour (until tender) Remove beets from oven & let cool, gently pull off skin then slice. Toss with a homemade vinaigrette, raw walnuts & cheese of your choice. Now it's ready to add to a nice salad or serve solo as a side dish.
