If your only memory of eating beets involves a cold vegetable that comes out of a can, you will be blown away when you taste a freshly roasted beet. Sweet, tender and full of flavor – when beets are slowly roasted the natural sugars caramelize and create a delicious flavor unlike anything you’ll ever find in a can. Fresh orange juice and rosemary adds a subtle background note while roasting that naturally complements the rich flavor of the roasted beets. To serve, we love adding a bit of crunchy texture with chopped pistachios and creamy tanginess from crumbled goat cheese.

Notes: To prevent red-stained hands, you may wish to wear kitchen gloves when handling beets.
