Recipe Notes

  • I used a metal baking pan lined with aluminum foil, which makes for easier cleanup (beets can be messy)!
  • The bright color of beets can rub off on fingers, clothing or counters, so quick cleanup to avoid staining can be helpful.
  • If you want to stir the beets halfway through the baking time, feel free, but it's not absolutely necessary.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Pour the beets into a baking dish lined with aluminum foil.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, add the olive oil, lemon juice and honey. Add salt and pepper, to taste, if desired. Stir to combine. Pour the mixture over the beets in the baking dish.
  3. Toss to coat beets in the mixture.
  4. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 30 minutes, or until crisp-tender.
