Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 4
  • 4 medium beets
  • 4 teaspoons butter, divided, plus more if needed
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh, chopped parsley
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Wash and peel the beets. Cut off part where stem was and use this flat area as the bottom of the beet.
  3. Place beets on a cutting board and cut thin slices about ¼ inch from bottom of the beet. (Place a thin cutting board behind the beets to prevent knife from going all the way through.)Rub a little butter onto the bottom of a baking dish. Place beets into dish and then add a little dab (about ½ to 1 teaspoon) of butter on the top of each.
  4. Roast for 20 minutes and then add a little more butter to each beet, using a pastry brush to make sure it gets evenly distributed. Roast for another 20 minutes and then brush again, you may be able to just dip brush into any fat on the bottom of the baking dish. Check doneness and then sprinkle with sea salt and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until soft when pierced. (Total roasting time about 50-55 minutes).
  5. Garnish with parsley and serve!
