Ingredients

  • 2 pounds beets whole, medium sized
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese optional
  • 3 tablespoons bacon crumbled, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  • Wash beets and trim long leaves to about 1 inch above the beetroot, if necessary. 
  • Wrap the beets individually in foil. If the beets are very large, slice them in half and wrap the halves individually in foil. 
  • Bake until fork tender, this takes about 45 minutes for medium-sized beets. 
  • Let cool so you can handle them, or put them in an ice bath (see note) to cool more quickly. 
  • Once beets are cool enough to handle, rub the skin with a paper towel and it will come right off. 
  • Trim the tops and bottoms and cut into bite-sized pieces.
  • Toss with remaining ingredients. 
  • Bake an additional 10 minutes to heat through, or serve room temperature.

Notes

An ice bath is a bowl filled with ice water.
