Perfect Baked Beets

This is a super simple recipe to turn beet-haters into beet-lovers. It did for me.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Wash but don’t peel a bunch of beets. Cut off greens and save for sauteing. Dry beets with paper towel and rub with olive oil. Place in a casserole dish and cover. Bake 60 minutes. Let cool slightly, then rub gently with paper towels and skins will just fall off. Wear gloves for this part unless you want to keep answering the question, “Why are your hands purple?”
  3. Serve with salt and pepper to taste. A delicious complement to just about any meal.
