Easy Beet Salad

Start with 6 organic beets.

Lovely fresh beets from my CSA.

   Wash beets thoroughly and chop off the ends.


Cleaned up & ready for the oven.

Wrap in foil and bake in an aproximately 200 Celsius (400 Fahrenheit) oven until soft (1 1/2 to 2 hours). 

Tip: Put them in the oven when you’re baking something else.

P.S. If you’ve never eaten beets before, you may be in for a bathroom surprise. Don’t worry, beeturia is harmless.

    love this version after a good cleaning of both beets and carrots shred with a cheese grater add chopped green onion,and parsley or cilantro, some lime juice and salt and pepper to your taste enjoy.

  2. Dawn says:

    I roast beets often, and they are generally done within 45 minutes to an hour, even the large ones. I test for doneness by sticking a knife into the beet. If it slips in easily, they are ready.

      Hi Dawn,
      You roast them (heat only coming from above) rather than bake them? I have to try that. I’ve always baked them.

  3. Liking some of your recipes but they have no ingredient measurements….Also “simple vinaigrette has absolutely no instructions.

    • Ruth Almon says:

      Hi Lorraine,
      Thanks for commenting. Most recipes do have a formal list of ingredients at the beginning, but some, like this beet recipes, are so simple, that the quantities are listed with the method. I added a link to a basic vinaigrette recipe.

Now it's your turn!
