YUMMY! Roasted beets. The perfect food to help satisfy your sweet cravings and ridiculously easy to make. Roasting beets brings out their natural sweetness. Just toss them in the oven for about 20 minutes and they're done!
Here's what you need:
4 beets, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves (optional)
1 pinch sea salt, or to taste
Here's how to cook them:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Toss the beets, olive oil, and thyme in a bowl until beets are coated, and arrange pieces of beet on baking sheet so that they don't touch. Sprinkle the beets with sea salt.
Roast in the preheated oven until the beets are tender, 10 to 20 minutes. A fork inserted into a beet cube should come out easily.
