Put a pop of color on the table with our hearty and vibrant-tasting roasted beets recipe. They’re easy enough to prepare on a weeknight, but also make for a fancy presentation if you’re serving company. All you need are some fresh beets and a few common pantry ingredients.

Beets are available in a variety of colors—golden beets, white beets and even beets with a bull’s-eye pattern, called Chioggia beets [key-oh-jah]. They taste great roasted all on their own, or you can include them in your favorite salad—beets trigger the same happy chemicals in your brain as chocolate. That’s a win-win!
