This is such an easy recipe of how to roast beets in the oven. The flavor of the beets becomes more concentrated and sweeter as they roast.


  • Beets
  • oil (avocado oil or olive oil)
  • salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Scrub the beets and cut off the tops and the roots.
  2. Drizzle the beets with oil and sprinkle with salt, so the beets are covered in oil  and salt on all sides. Place the beets into parchment bags and staple shut. 
  3. Place the beets on a roasting sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 30-60 minutes. The beets are done when they can easily be pierced with a paring knife or a wooden skewer. 
  4. Peeling beets is really easy too. When the beets are cool enough to handle, use a paper towel, get a grip on the beet and and just peel off the skin. It slides right off.
  5. Store the roasted beets in the refrigerator for up to a week.
