Spicy Roasted Golden Beets
“Beets are one of my favorite root vegetables, and I’m lucky to live in the Pacific Northwest, where they are available locally for most of the year,” says Sonnet Lauberth, a holistic health coach, food educator, and blogger (fortheloveoffoodblog.com).
“I wanted to create a dish with roasted beets that had a little more pizzazz. I love serving this dish to friends and family—there are usually quite a few beet haters in the mix and it is always fun to see them change their minds about beets after trying these.”
- 2 bunches golden beets, tops removed, beets peeled and quartered (1¾ lb.)
- 2 Tbs. coconut oil
- 1 tsp. Simply Organic ground cumin
- ½ tsp. Simply Organic paprika
- 1 pinch Simply Organic chili powder
Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss together all ingredients on large baking sheet. Roast 30 to 40 minutes, or until beets are tender, turning once. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
