Roasted yellow beets – fresh from the farmer’s market

On Saturday we went to the Lansdowne Farmer’s Market (held every Saturday in the municipal parking lot on Lansdowne Ave). My mom picked up some raw yellow beets and gave me half of them to take home. My refrigerator has been looking pretty bare lately, so I decided to roast them up for lunch today. I didn’t follow a recipe. I decided to wing it and just go with how I usually roast veggies – 425 degree oven about 25-30 minutes with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Here is what they look like when you buy them, except the stalks are cut off in this picture.




Next I peeled the skin off and cut them into smaller pieces before putting them on a baking sheet. After you do this, drizzle with the olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder.









Roast in a 425 degree oven for about 25 minutes (I like roasted veggies on the softer side) and enjoy!


These were delicious! So sweet – like a mix of a carrot and a sweet potato maybe? After I was done I didn’t need anything else to eat! I will definitely be purchasing these again. Yum 🙂
