Roasted Beets with Maple Syrup

Jessica Braider
In my opinion, the simplest and most delicious way to prepare beets is to roast them. They always come up sweet and delicious.
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 1 hr 10 mins
Total Time 1 hr 15 mins
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb. beet peeled and cut into 1 - 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. butter or extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a round or square baking dish that is big enough to hold the beets in a single layer with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Put the beets in the dish.
  • In a measuring cup, combine the orange juice, maple syrup, and ginger and pour it over the beets.
  • Cut the butter into pieces and scatter it over the beets (or drizzle with the olive oil), then season everything with the salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cover the dish tightly with foil and bake the beets for 60 - 70 minutes until they are tender when pierced with a fork.
