Roasted Beets

In the past year, beets have become a staple in our diet and in our garden.  When we want a pretty simple dinner, we pick some beets, roast them, slice them, and serve them with a salad. 

Simple Roast Beets
1/4 cup orange juice
Fresh herbs:  bay leaves, rosemary, thyme, oregano; minced
Olive Oil
4 beets
1 tsp salt
freshly ground pepper

Coat beets with olive oil.  Place in baking dish.  Add orange juice and fresh herbs.  Roast at 425 for 45 minutes or until tender.  Using a paper towel, peel skin away from beets.  Chop into desired shape and cool.
