Something I’ve been meaning to do for a while but kept pushing off. So of course the first really hot day of the summer is when I decide to roast beets for an hour… I can be weird sometimes.
You want an apron for this one, and possibly gloves. And to keep reminding yourself that beet’s juice stains. A lot. Wipe things down as you go to prevent having pink/red stains all over your kitchen.
1. Pre-heat the oven to 375F
3. Cut the top and bottom of the beets and put them on top of a large piece of aluminium foil. put the halves of garlic between the beets. Pour some olive oil over all the vegetables. Add salt and pepper then fold the foil as air thigh as you can. Repeat with the yellow beets.
6. Gently scrape the blade of a knife on the edge of the beets to peel them then slice into cubes.
