Roasting beets concentrates their natural sweetness and couldn’t be easier. To serve, drizzle the beets with olive oil and sprinkle them with salt, or try them in either our Roasted Beet and Chèvre Grilled Cheese or our Smoked Salmon Tea Sandwiches. Once you master this, add our beet salad recipe to your go-to side dishes.
Game plan: Leafy beet tops make a great addition to pasta or even a quick side dish if you wilt them in walnut oil and serve with grated aged pecorino.
Peel the beets under running water to cool them faster and minimize finger-staining.
