Baked beets

Incredibly versatile

Baked beets are incredibly versatile and can be used in a multitude of recipes. In the colder months, I bake a batch every week, so that I always have them on hand. They make a colorful and flavorful addition to salads, soups, pastas… and many other goodies.

Tender, juicy roots and loaded with concentrated beetiness

The beets are baked with a little water to keep them moist while they’re cooking. The result is especially tender and juicy roots that are loaded with concentrated beetiness!

To get the most tender, juicy beets, pick small or medium-size bulbs (large ones tend to be more fibrous). Also, always choose bunched beets, with their leaves still attached to them (the greens should still be fresh and vibrant). You can bake red, golden or pink beets, but the pink ones will lose their color and turn pale pink if not almost white.
