I peel the beets, ( you can put them in alum. foil if you would like to save on the mess) I cross the top of the beets or cut them in half or quarters depending on their size…toss with a BIT OF of olive oil, a splash of lemon juice, kosher salt and pepper. I roast at 400 until they are soft to the touch…similar to a baked potato…you can put a bit of goat cheese on top and it is incredible. You can also add minced garlic too…which is what I prefer….
