I *ADORE* beets. The best salad in the world has beets in it, in my opinion. LOL I would eat them every day if I could!
So, I made this up the other day as I had beets to cook. Pretty darn yummy if I must say so myself!
Preheat oven to 400. Wrap about 2-3 beets (mine still had stems/greens on
and were NOT peeled) in heavy duty foil (or double the foil) – you can make several packages – and place in a pan. Bake for about 1 to 1 1/4 hours.
Turn off oven and just leave in there to continue baking. You can tell when they are done by the fork easily piercing the skin..
Pour 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar and 2 tsp sugar in sauce pan, stir until it’s reduced, and coats a spoon.. Be careful not to cook too long – it turns into glue. LOL
After beets are cooled, they should easily pop right out of their skins, and then cut them to bite size..
Place in a bowl, pour the glaze over the top, and then crumble goat cheese over the top. FABULOUS!!!!
As always – ENJOY!!
