CSA cooking: citrus beets with garlic

basket inventory: rosemary, mint, chives, 2 types of lettuce, lemons, oranges, avocados, sprouts, golden beets, chard, strawberries, radish, zucchini, kumquats, grapefruit, awesome looking purple kale.

i don't like beets, never had. i know, i know they are really good for you-lots of iron yada yada. i do however LOVE beet greens. Usually what i do is eat the greens and give the beet part to my friends Jack and August-they love to juice them-double yuck!
i know that we will be getting more beets and i really love how the goldens look. i am trying to find a way to make them tasty....people always tell me that roasted beets are really good so maybe if i add tons of lemon and garlic it might help!

  • beets, peeled if not organic, cut into chunks
  • 1 clove of garlic, thinly sliced per beet
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice (or more)
  • olive oil to coat
  • ¼ tsp sugar (opt)
  • salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. in a bowl, mix all ingredients together, toss until everything is well coated. place into a a dish covered with foil. wrap the foil around the beets. bake for 40 minutes or until soft.
