Roasted Beets with a Balsamic Glaze

I have always been a fan of beets since I was a kid, but haven’t ate them since I’ve been married. Joe’s not exactly a beet fan. However, a friend dropped off some beets and I wasn’t about to let them go to waste. Here is what I did with them!

First, you’ll need a bunch of fresh beets, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup and salt!

Cut off all the tops and use a veggie peeler to take off all the skin. Chop into chunks.

Remember, beets are usually used as a natural food coloring. It will STAIN!

Put all the beets on a cookie sheet. I put a piece of parchment paper down. Sprinkle the beets with salt. Roast in an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 40 mins, until the beets are fork tender.

While the beets are roasting, prepare the glaze. You’ll need 1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar and 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup.

Bring the vinegar and maple syrup to a simmer in a pan and reduce the mixture by half. Cook until you have a glaze that coats the back of a spoon. Keep an eye on this as it can burn quickly.

Once your beets are done pull them out of the oven.

You can either toss the beets in the glaze or drizzle the glaze over the cooked beets. Either way, this makes a gorgeous and delicious side dish!
