Simple Roasted Beets

If you learn my simple trick for how to roast beets, you'll never look at those funny root vegetables the same way again. Properly roasted beets are a far cry from those soggy tasteless pink slabs that come in a can. Roasted beets are sweet, rich, tender, and an incredible addition to salads - or great on their own!

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a large baking sheet with a nonstick pad or tinfoil lightly coated in nonstick spray. Set aside.
  • Peel the thin skin off of each beet, then use a sharp knife to cut off the stem and root ends. Slice the beet into about 1/2" slices. 
  • Transfer slices to a large mixing bowl and toss with oil, then salt.
  • Spread the beet slices in an evenly-spaced layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes until softened, then flip and cook another 15-30 minutes until tender.


  • Store completely cooled beets in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
