It is super easy to roast beets in the oven. Wrap each of them in foil packs and then bake until tender.
Prepare the beets: Cut off the greens and stems. Don’t waste them. You can use them in another recipe.
Pack the beets in foil: Wrap each with aluminum foil. If they are very small, you can pack 2-4 of them together.
Bake: Put them in a baking pan. Roast for 50-60 minutes. The cooking time might be less if your beets are really small. Check if they are done after 30 minutes. If you can easily insert a knife into a beet, it is done.
Peel: Let them cool for 10 min after they are baked. They shouldn’t be completely cool. Put on your gloves and peel them with your hands. Alternatively, you can use a knife but make sure to have your gloves.
Use in Recipes or Store: Slice the roasted peeled beets and use in recipes. Or store them whole in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a week.
