Ingredients

  • 6 beets
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • fresh thyme for garnish

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 430F / 220c.
  • Peel the beets and cut them into quarters.
  • Place in a bowl with the rest of the rosemary, brown sugar, a few pinches of salt and pepper and the oil.
  • Combine with a spoon so that the beets are well covered with the oil.
  • Line a baking tin with parchment and place in the beets in a single layer.
  • Roast in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until just fork tender.
  • Remove from the oven and pour over the balsamic vinegar. Toss the beets so that they are well covered.
  • Place back in the oven for 5 minutes.
  • Serve!

Notes

  • Beets stain! If you don't want pink hands for a day or two, wear gloves when you peel them, and don't use your favorite chopping board when you cut them into wedges.
  • Cut the wedges into similar sizes so that they cook through evenly.
  • Coat the beets well in the oil. This will help them to crisp up all over.
  • Place the beet wedges into an even layer on your baking sheet. If they are over crowded, they will steam rather than roast.
  • The beets should be just fork tender when you add the balsamic.
