I never knew how tasty beets were until I started roasting them. This is a very simple recipe, and the best part is you can eat it cold (which means a simple make-ahead dish!).


  • Beets, washed (and peeled if you want, but I didn’t for these) and sliced.
  • Balsamic vinegar (I used a fig-vanilla balsamic)
  • Olive oil
  • Crumbled Goat Cheese
  • Fresh mint leaves

In a bowl, mixe together olive oil and balsamic (about 50/50, I don’t know how much exactly, just enough to coat the beets). Put them on a layer of tin-foil in a pan into a pre-heated oven (to 400 degrees Fahrenheit) and bake for 35-ish minutes. Remove them and let cool.

Then, put the beets on a plate and sprinkle goat cheese and mint over them, and also drizzle a little bit more balsamic on top. Then, eat and smile!

My recipes aren’t super precise; I just kind of wing it for a lot of my cooking but thought I’d share my process.
