We have been growing a few different varieties of beets the last few years. We usually make them boiled but for an event in September we roasted them in the oven for about an hour and served them warm with bits of melting goat cheese.
1 block Fresh Goat Cheese
Clean the beets well and cut the tops and roots off.
Boil the beets whole in a large stock pot of water for 20-30 minutes.
This helps to remove the skins.
Remove from the hot water. Cool.
Gently rub or peel off the skins.
Dice the peeled beets into 1-2 inch cubes.
Toss with Olive Oil, Salt, and Pepper in a large roasting pan.
Roast in a 400 degree oven for 40-55 minutes or until beets are fork tender.
Transfer the hot roasted beets to your serving dish and sprinkle the top with bits of fresh goat cheese.
