You Can't Beat Beets

I roasted some golden beets and WOW, I thought they were FANTASTIC! I will say, though, that the leftovers weren't quite as delish.

Roasted Balsamic Golden Beets
serves 4

6 large golden beets, scrubbed clean, trimmed of any rootlets, and halved
1/2 T extra virgin olive oil
kosher salt
balsamic vinegar
Stick the beets into a large ziploc bag with the oil and shake to coat. Put them cut side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast at 375 degrees until beets are tender, 40-45 minutes. Cut the beets into smaller chunks and place in serving bowl (if you want, you can let them cool a bit to be able to handle them better). Sprinkle with salt and a light drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
