Basic Roasted Beets Recipe

A simple and easy recipe to roast beets for salads or any recipe that calls for roasted beets.




  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Scrub beets and dry with a paper towel. Place in a baking dish and drizzle generously with olive oil and salt. Cover with foil and roast until a knife is easily inserted, about 45 minutes.
  2. Remove from oven and set aside until cool enough to handle. Trim off ends with a pairing knife and rub off skin with a paper towel. Quarter or slice beets as desired.
