Roasted Beets

Last week’s farmers’ market had lots of beets. Following is a recipe for roasting them.

• 2 lbs. beets

• 2 shallots

• 2 tbsp. olive oil

• 1 tbsp. honey

• 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

• Salt

• Pepper

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Peel and slice the beets into 1/2 inch thick wedges. Slice the shallots into wedges. Toss the beets and shallots with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place in a single layer on the parchment paper. Roast for 40 minutes. Drizzle the beets and shallots with honey and balsamic vinegar. Toss to coat. Cook for 15 minutes, until the beets are tender and beginning to caramelize. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, or let cool and store in an airtight container.
