key ingredient:


– Beets; washed and trimmed


1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Remove the stems and roots and give the beets a gentle scrub to remove any dirt.


2. Wrap each beat gently in foil and place in a baking dish to catch any juices. Bake for 25-35 minutes for smaller beets or 45 minutes to an hour for large beets. Test for doneness by inserting a knife in the centre and if it goes through easily the beets are cooked.

Wrap & Bake

3. Remove the beets from the oven and carefully unwrap the foil from the beets. Using a strong papertowel pinch away the outer skin of the beets to remove or peel off the skin. You may wish to use gloves for this because beet juice stains everything so be careful.

Unwrap & Peel

4. Once the skin has been removed you can slice or cube and eat plain as a side dish or add to salads or rice.
