Roasted Beets with Feta
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.
