Roasted Beets

1 bunch of beets
2 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
3 tbsp. garlic
Salt (to taste)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. vinegar (*Suggested: White vinegar or Balsamic vinegar)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash and dry beets; leave skin on. Remove the green on the beets and put to the side for later. In a baking dish, combine the beets, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Place the dish in the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes or until beets are tender. Drizzle on the vinegar and Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: JKGF’s new fetish is beets. They are a site for sore eyes on a plate with the unique coloring and burst of flavor. We know, we know…you don’t like beets, right?? Well, make them into something more geared toward your taste buds i.e. if you’re a salt person, add more salt or even some sugar might add to the already semi-sweet flavor of the beet. Twist it into something good;-) They’re good for you!
