Yield: 6 servings

Level: Easy



  • 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


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

  • 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.)

  • 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.

I made this recipe in my electric pressure cooker (12 minutes cooking, plus the 10 min cool down), using balsamic instead of raspberry vinegar, and I also threw in a chopped sweet onion. It. Was. Amazing.  See All Reviews Post Review
