Roasted Beets with Balsamic Vinegar

From Kitchen Parade: RECIPE for ROASTED BEETS with BALSAMIC VINEGAR

Hands-on time: 5 minutes Time to table: 65 minutes or 95 minutes
Serves 4

1 pound fresh red beets
Olive oil, optional (I don’t find it necessary, see NUTRITION ESTIMATE for calorie impact)

Balsamic vinegar Slice off the greens but leave about a half inch of the stem end intact (this preserves the nutrients). Wash well. Place each beet on a sheet of foil or all the beets in a single layer in a casserole dish. If you’re watching calories, MEASURE the olive oil (it’s easy to use more than you want!) and drizzle onto the beets. Splash with balsamic vinegar.

Roast at 400F for 1 hour OR at 375F for 90 minutes. Let cool, slip off skins. Slice or chop and serve immediately or refrigerate for later use.
