Roast Beets with Orange Gremolata and Goat Cheese

My grandma always grew beets then pickled or canned them, but I prefer to prepare them differently. I like these roasted beets in the winter but they can be enjoyed all year with the addition of fresh herbs and tangy goat cheese. —Courtney Archibeque, Portland, Oregon
  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Bake: 55 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    12 servings


  • 3 medium fresh golden beets (about 1 pound)
  • 3 medium fresh beets (about 1 pound)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh sage
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower kernels


  • Preheat oven to 400°. Scrub beets and trim tops by 1 in. Place beets on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 24x12 in.). Fold foil around beets, sealing tightly. Place on a baking sheet. Roast until tender, 55-65 minutes. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.
  • When cool enough to handle, peel, halve and slice beets; place in a serving bowl. Add lime juice, orange juice and salt; toss to coat. Combine parsley, sage, garlic and orange zest; sprinkle over beets. Top with goat cheese and sunflower kernels. Serve warm or chilled.
