Roasted Beets

Ingredients

3 golden beets
5 red beets
1 large yellow onion, wedged
1 large red onion, wedged
olive oil spray
1 tsp. fine sea salt

Preparation

1
Preheat oven to 400*F.
2
Spray 1 or 2 baking pans with olive oil spray.
3
Gently scrub beets to remove all dirt. Cut off the greens and set aside to use another time (unless you already used them!).
4
Trim off ends and any spots. If preferred, peel, but you do not need to as long as you scrubbed them well and cut out any blemishes.
5
Cut beets into wedges of similar thickness (they do not need to be the same length).
6
Arrange along with the onions in one even layer on baking pans and spray again.
7
Sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through.
8
Depending on the thickness of your wedges, they may need to roast longer. If so, keep an eye on the onions, as they may roast slightly faster than beets.
9
Serve immediately.

About

Roasting the beets causes them to carmelize and become soft inside with a nice crunch on the outside.
