Ingredients

12 beets

3 tablespoons good olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, minced

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar

Juice of 1 large orange

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Remove the tops and the roots of the beets and peel each one with a vegetable peeler. Cut the beets in 1 1/2-inch chunks. (Small beets can be halved, medium ones cut in quarters, and large beets cut in eighths.)
  3. Place the cut beets on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil, thyme leaves, salt, and pepper. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, turning once or twice with a spatula, until the beets are tender. Remove from the oven and immediately toss with the vinegar and orange juice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve warm.
