Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Peel four medium beets and cut into 1/2-inch pieces.  Toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste on a baking sheet.  Roast at 450 degrees, stirring once or twice, until tender, 35 minutes.  Transfer to a bowl; toss with four chopped scallions and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice.  Top with crumbled feta.

Tips:  When shopping for beets, choose small or medium size.  You also want the roots to be firm.  Do not wash beets before storing.   Store beets in a plastic bag and with the air squeezed out.  Can store up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator.  The greens on the beets also be consumed.
