Roasted beets recipes taste amazing tossed into salads, blended into dips, or served as-is alongside grilled or roasted meats. Multitask and prep these oven-roasted beets while your entree cooks, too.
Scrub beets; trim off stem and root ends. If desired, peel the baby beets. (If using medium beets, peel them and cut into 1-inch pieces.) Set beets aside.
In a medium saucepan cook unpeeled onions in boiling water for 3 minutes; drain. Rinse onions with cold water. Carefully remove skins.
Place beets and onions in a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. In a small bowl combine olive oil, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Drizzle over vegetables in pan. Toss lightly to coat.
Cover pan with foil and roast in a 375 degrees F oven for 30 minutes; uncover and continue roasting for 20 to 30 minutes more or until vegetables are tender. If desired, sprinkle with fresh chives.
