Balsamic Roasted Beets

Beets are a unique source of phytonutrients that provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support. They are also rich in vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals such as potassium and manganese.

Roasting balsamic marinaded beets is a delectable way to eat this beautiful ruby-red root vegetable. The balsamic vinegar caramelizes as it bakes, making this a recipe absolutely scrumptious!

Simple to prepare, however, the juice from beets has a tendency to stain anything and everything that it comes in contact with. After peeling and slicing beets, my hands, knife and cutting board look like a veritable blood bath! Fortunately, it washes off pretty easily with soap and water!


  • 6 medium beets

  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • Salt to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

  • Peel and cut the beets into bite sized chunks

  • Combine the beats, vinegar and salt, and place in a foil lined baking pan, spreading out evenly

  • Bake uncovered for 45 minutes to an hour, turning the beets once or twice

  • Test for readiness by piercing the beets with a knife. They should be soft, but lightly crispy and caramelized around edges

  • Serve and enjoy!
