Roasted Balsamic Rosemary Beets

This is an easy side dish with simple ingredients. We had this with honey garlic salmon, but you could serve it with anything really. Recipes like this also pair wonderfully with Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

I love cooking root vegetables because they’re fast to prep, easy to roast and inexpensive at the grocery store.

First, the beets are coated with a simple balsamic rosemary marinade. Then they’re roasted for 50-60 minutes in the oven.

CHEF TIP: To cook the beets even faster, chop them into small bite-size pieces. The smaller the pieces, the faster they will cook. My pieces were a bit larger which took about 60 minutes to bake.

There are three main types of beets: red beets, golden beets (these are a deep yellow color) and striped beets. I found my striped beets at my local farmers market. You can choose two different varieties to create a beautiful presentation.

How To Roast Beets

This recipe uses a simple marinade to add more flavor to the beets. Here’s how to make it:

  1. Prep – Peel and slice the beets into small chunks that are the same size.
  2. Make Marinade – In a small bowl, combine avocado oil, balsamic vinegar, rosemary, salt and pepper. Add the beets to a large bowl along with marinade. Toss together until evenly coated.
  3. Roast Beets – Add the beets to a baking dish and bake at 400°F for 50-60 minutes.
