So do you remember when I said that I didn’t like beets? It was when I had made my Red Velvet Chocolate Beet Cake. Well that was because the only other way I had eaten beets was boiled. Yes I said boiled… Just in water. Yuck…
Well in the fall when I was making my delicious red velvet cake, I had picked up a second ten pound bag of beets. I really thought about it, and believe it or not, I decided that I shouldn’t use twenty pounds of beets to only make chocolate cakes.
So then I decided to start to try roasting them. I added the sweetness of the maple syrup and the tang from the vinegar and they tasted great!! I can no ;longer say that I am not a fan of beets. I have now become a beet lover!!
Maple Glazed Beets (Paleo/ Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Vegan)
4 beets peeled and chopped ***
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp. raw apple cider vinegar
1 tsp maple syrup (or honey if not vegan)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix together beets and olive oil in glass baking dish. Bake for 40 minutes.
Take out and coat beets in vinegar and maple syrup. Bake for 15 more minutes. Serve.
*** Don’t worry about the red dye from the beets. A little bit of soap and water and it’s all gone. No your hand will not stay stained. No you don’t not have to scrub them. Just wash them 🙂
