This is another recipe that with a minimal amount of effort, you get a stellar side dish!


8 beets (any type)

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

About 1 tsp of salt

About 1/2 tsp of pepper

1/2 cup of feta, crumbled

2 green onions, thinly sliced

1 lemon


Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Chop both ends off the beets, peel, and cut into 1/2 inch pieces (I usually get 12 pieces per average sized beet)

Line a baking tray with aluminum foil (for easy clean up).

Place beets on the tray and drizzle with the olive oil about 1 Tbsp, but it doesn’t have to be exact. You want enough to lightly coat the beet pieces, but not to fry them.

Sprinkle salt and pepper over the beets and mix to make sure all sides of the beets are coated.

Place beets in the oven until tender (about 40 minutes).

Once beets are done, place them in a bowl. Mix in crumbled feta, sliced green onions, and the juice of ½ a lemon. Taste and season with more salt, pepper, and/or lemon juice if desired.
