  • 6 medium beetstops removed, scrubbed well
  • Extra-virgin olive oilfor drizzling
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Place each beet on a piece of foil. Drizzle generously with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap the beets in the foil, place on a baking sheet, and roast for 35 to 60 minutes, or until fork-tender. The timing will depend on the size and freshness of the beets.
  3. Remove the beets from the oven, remove the foil, and set aside to cool. When the beets are cool to the touch, peel off the skins. You can hold them under running water and slide the skins off with your hands.
  4. Cut or slice the beets and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper, toss, and serve.
