Honey Balsamic Roasted Beets

I was on a mission to create a recipe that took the dirt taste out of these ultra heart healthy root vegetables!

With complimenting flavors of balsamic vinegar, honey, and orange extract, this recipe was a hit! The sweetness of the honey and orange extract help cut the acidity of the vinegar, creating a beautiful melody of flavors!

Ingredients

  • Beets: Nutrient-rich and packed with antioxidants, beets have a distinct earthy flavor. The combination of honey, balsamic vinegar, and orange extract in this recipe elevates them to a whole new level of deliciousness.
  • Balsamic Vinegar: Adding a touch of complexity with its rich and slightly sweet flavor.
  • Honey: This natural sweetener brings warmth and mellows the vinegar’s acidity.
  • Orange Extract: An unexpected twist that adds a bright citrus note, enhancing the overall flavor.

Storage

  • Fridge: Store leftover roasted beets in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • Freezer: If you’d like to freeze them, place the cooled roasted beets in a single layer on a baking sheet, then transfer to a freezer bag. They can be frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight and reheat in the oven.

Chef’s Tips

  • Beet Selection: Choose beets that are firm and smooth, without any soft spots or blemishes.
  • Consistent Sizing: Cut the beets into uniform pieces to ensure even cooking.
  • Roasting Pan: Use a parchment-lined baking sheet for easy cleanup.
  • Customizing Flavors: Feel free to experiment with additional herbs and spices such as thyme or rosemary.
  • Serving Suggestions: Serve with a sprinkle of feta cheese or chopped fresh parsley for added texture and flavor.
