Today’s roasted beets recipe comes courtesy of Spouse who loves this time of year because it’s time for fresh local beets to hit the market. She grew up enjoying her mom’s pickled beets all year long and our son has definitely inherited that love too. 

Beets are a close second to parsnip in her list of favourite root vegetables. Roasting them is her preferred method of cooking this dark, sweet vegetable.

Roasted beets are delicious just tossed with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. The addition of another couple of simple ingredients like honey and balsamic vinegar adds a beautiful, glistening and very tasty glaze to the roasted beets.

Everyone is always looking for great side dishes for Fall meals and this one is not to be missed.

These warm roasted beets also make a phenomenal addition to any salad but adding them to a spinach and goat cheese salad is a particular favourite of mine.

Tried this today with candy cane beets. Made them both with and without the balsamic vinegar and honey. Both kinds were tasty but we preferred this particular beet without the addition of the balsamic vinegar and honey - it was delicious with just the olive oil, salt, and pepper. They are a sweeter beet anyway.
