How to Roast Beets - MinnesotaFromScratch.wordpress.com

Beets (pH 4.9 – 6.6) are one of nature’s best bodily cleansers and provide the following healthy benefits:

  • dissolve and eliminate acid crystals from the kidneys
  • eliminate blood toxemia
  • enrich the red corpuscles (building strong blood)
  • detoxify the liver and gallbladder
  • eliminate pocket acid material (what?) in the bowel
  • the list goes on and on…

As you can imagine, roasting beets is pretty simple.  Find a nice firm beet that feels heavy for its size, scrub it clean and preheat the oven to 375°F .

Using a covered roasting dish or tin foil (closed tight), place the cleaned beet (or beets) in the middle and drizzle with olive oil.  Roast them covered tightly until they are tender, depending on the size of the beet that timeframe can range; large beets can take up to an hour to roast.  Start checking their tenderness with a fork after about 20 minutes.

Once done, allow them to cool and then remove the skin.  They can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

A simple side dish:

For an easy to make side dish just slice the beets, drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt.  Enjoy!
