Roasted Beets with Feta

Beets, liver, oysters, these are all things that people either love or hate it would seem.  I love them all but beets are tops!  This little recipe is easy and only takes a few simple ingredients.  It is also very doable to peel them after roasting as the outer skin just slips right off.

The sweetness of the roasted beets paired with the tart lemon juice and salty Feta is delicious.

Ingredients for Roasted Beets with Feta:

1 bunch fresh beets, washed well, and  tops trimmed
olive oil
salt and pepper
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 c. Feta cheese
1-2 thinly sliced green onions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Spread the beets over a half sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil then sprinkle with salt and pepper.  (I line the pan with foil then throw the whole mess away when done.)  Place the beets in the hot oven and roast until fork tender, about 40-50 minutes.    

Cool the beets and peel by slipping off the outer skin.  Cut the larger beets into quarters.  Squeeze the lemon juice over the beets and toss with the onions.  Top with crumbled Feta and serve.  This is delicious both warm and cold.  Serves 2-3.

I just roasted some beets last night, made same salad. We like to have it for dinner sometimes. Tastes very good.

I've had pickled beets since I was a child and loved them, but roast beets have just recently become my favourite way to eat them
