    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound medium fresh beets, peeled
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 to 5 fresh rosemary sprigs

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°. Cut each beet into 6 wedges; place in a shallow dish. Add olive oil and salt; toss gently to coat.
  • Place a piece of heavy-duty foil about 12 in. long in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Arrange beets on foil; top with rosemary. Fold foil around beets and seal tightly.
  • Bake until tender, about 1 hour. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Discard rosemary sprigs.
TEST KITCHEN TIP For a milder herb flavor, try using fresh thyme instead of rosemary. You may make the beets a day ahead, then slice and serve cold in a salad.
