[Food Series] Roasted Balsamic Beets with Goat Cheese

I know, beets aren’t for everyone. Most people I know either love them or hate them. Luckily, for my family, we all fall in to the LOVE them category! In the last few weeks, we’ve received a ton of fresh beets in our CSA delivery and I’ve been experimenting and re-imagining some of my favorite recipes. This one is so incredibly easy and delicious, it’s almost a crime! Enjoy!

3 lbs Golden and Red Beets
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
2 ounces Goat Cheese

To roast the beets, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Remove beet tops (the stalks and greens) and wrap the beets in aluminum foil. Place the beets in the oven for about an hour, making sure rotate them every 20 minutes. If they are really large beets, they might need more roasting time. I generally do the ‘squeeze’ test. If you squeeze them (with an oven mitt!) and they depress, they are ready! When the beets are done, take them out and set them on the counter and allow them to cool. When the beets are cooled, easily remove the skin with your hands or by gently rubbing them with a paper towel. Slice the beets a 1/4 inch in thickness, sprinkle a few dollops of goat cheese on top and drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Enjoy!

  1. You know, I don't really have a preference on beets, but never have purchased them and definitely didn't know they came in a different color. I'll have to check this out, it does sound tasty. Thank you for linking up with Countdown in Style!


  2. I still haven't tried beets! I want to. I hear they are great for prostate health so I plan to get them and put them in a blended drink for hubby. This looks like a really tasty recipe to try. Thanks so much for sharing it with us Jen at Countdown in Style! xo
