  • 1 1/2 pounds beets
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 fresh orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves


  • Preheat oven to 425 F. Scrub, peel, and cut the beets into 1-inch pieces.
  • Place cubed beets on large piece of foil on a baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil. Mix it all up with your hands (clean hands) and season with sea salt and ground pepper.
  • Fold foil around the beets and crimp the ends to form a packet. Roast until tender when pierced with a knife, about 45 minutes.
  • Transfer beets to a large bowl and drizzle with red-wine vinegar, honey and orange juice. Top with finely grated orange zest and fresh thyme leaves. *I adjusted these ingredients to my taste.
