Roasted Beets with Balsamic Glaze

(simplyrecipes.com)

INGREDIENTS

1 lb red beets, medium sized, scrubbed clean, green tops removed (see beet greens recipe for what to do with beet greens)

Olive oil

Salt

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp grated orange zest

Freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS

1 Preheat oven to 400°F and line pan with aluminum foil.

2 Rub beets with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, place in pan, cover with foil: Place the beets in the pan. Rub olive oil over the beets, and sprinkle with salt. Cover the beets with another sheet of aluminum foil.

3 Roast for 1 to 2 hours: Roast for 1 to 2 hours, depending on the size of the beets and how old they are. After 1 hour, test every fifteen minutes by poking a beet with the tines of a fork.

4 Prepare balsamic glaze: While the beets are cooling, prepare the balsamic glaze. In a small, shallow sauté pan, add the balsamic vinegar and sugar. Heat on high until the vinegar has reduced to a syrup consistency. Remove from heat.

5 Peel and cut cooked beets: After the beets have cooled for several minutes, but are still warm to the touch, peel off the outer skins and discard. Cut the beets into quarters or more, bite-sized pieces.

6 Pour glaze over beets: Place beets in a serving bowl. Pour balsamic glaze over the beets. Stir in grated orange zest, and add salt and pepper to taste.

Garnish with a little orange zest to serve.
