3 Beets


First preheat the oven to 400 degrees and remove the stems and greens from the beets. Then grab your handy dandy dish gloves and scrub the beets thoroughly under warm water.
Next, dry them with a paper towel and place them on a cookie sheet lined with tin foil then drizzle olive oil on to them and rub them to make sure they are completely coated.
Lastly, fold the edges of the tinfoil in so that the beets are completely covered.
Then pop them in the oven and cook for about 45 minutes. The larger the beets are, the longer they need to cook, so I usually use a 45 to 60 minute window depending on their size.
Once they are done, let them cool on the counter for a while. Then after they have cooled, leave them in the foil and place them in the refrigerator on a plate or in Tupperware. When you’re ready to eat them, take them out and put your dish gloves back on.
Then remove the foil and rub the skins off while holding them over the sink.
Once the skin is off, rinse the beets and place them on a cutting board.
Once they’re all clean and shiny, slice them on the cutting board while still wearing dish gloves. The beets will stain your hands so keep them on the whole time!
After I slice and dice them, I place them in a bowl with a little bit of salt & pepper and olive oil and microwave them for about a minute. Then they are ready to go as a yummy side!
