Beets are one of those veggies that people either love or hate, but they are so incredibly nutritious. They are a very rich source of vitamin B9 and manganese with compelling amounts of vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin C, calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, zinc, copper, and selenium. In addition, beets are source of betaine which aids the detoxification processes. Therefore, it’s worth experimenting with recipes to find a way to enjoy beets. This is one of my absolute favorite ways to enjoy beets. There’s something about the sweet versus sour combination of balsamic vinegar and roasted beets that’s absolutely divine!
Balsamic Roasted Beets
- 8 beets medium
- 2 tablespoons vinegar balsamic
- 1 tablespoon olive oil extra virgin
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350F. Lay a large piece of aluminum foil in a baking dish, lifting the sides to create an edge all the way around
- Combine the beets, vinegar, oil, and salt. Pour into the foil. Fold the edges of the foil up and over the beets to make a pocket for the beets to cook in, sealing the edges closed. (Alternatively, you can use a greased baking dish with a lid).
- Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the beets are tender (it depends on the size of your beets)
