Health Highlights


6 beet(s) Beets, raw (medium sized)
1 pinch Kosher salt
1 dash Black pepper (freshly ground)
2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil


  1. Heat the oven to 400°F (204°C) with the rack in the middle.
  2. Wash and trim the beets so the stems are about ½- inch and the roots about 2 inches or less.
  3. Place the beets into a single layer in a baking dish and add an inch of water. Cover with a heat-safe lid (or aluminum foil) and bake in the oven for about an hour or until the beets are easily pierced with a knife (45 minutes for the small ones and up to 75 minutes for the larger ones).
  4. Cool the beets and then slice off the tops, long tails, and peel the skins.
  5. Chop the beets into bite-size pieces and season to taste with salt, pepper, and a liberal splash of balsamic vinegar.
  6. Marinate the beets for at least 30 mintues, stirring once or twice, before adding extra virgin olive oil.
  7. Enjoy or store the beets in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
