How To Roast Beets

Share this post

Roasted beets may be served hot or cold.  They’re delicious salads,  combined with other root veggies, or pureed for soups.

  1. Heat oven to 375 °F.
  2. Rinse beets well and trim off any leafy tops (which are also edible).
  3. Wrap beets in foil and place on middle rack in oven.
  4. Roast until beets are tender and easily pierced with a knife, checking every 20 minutes or so (total roasting time is usually between 45–60 minutes depending on size; giant beets may take longer); once tender, remove from oven.
    When beets are cool enough to handle, peel using a paring knife or by pushing off the skin with your fingers.
