Earthy beets turn sweet and tender when they’re roasted in this healthy beets recipe. Preheating your baking sheet speeds up the roasting time and gives the outside of the beets a quick and flavorful sear. Honey and lemon juice add sweet and tangy notes.
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil or canola oil
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
- 2 pounds medium beets, peeled, halved and cut into small wedges
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
Place a large rimmed baking sheet in the oven. Preheat to 425°F.
Stir oil, salt and pepper together in a large bowl. Add beets and toss well to coat. Transfer the beets to the hot baking sheet and roast until almost tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
Remove from the oven and drizzle with honey and lemon juice, tossing to coat. Continue roasting until tender, about 5 minutes more.
