Simple Roasted Beets with Citrus

By now you probably know who's bringing the stuffing,the mashed potatoes,the gravy,and the pumpkin pie.至少我是这样想的。I know if I'm going to add anything else to my Thanksgiving menu,it's going to have to be something super easy to put together.It can't take up reheating space in the oven,and it's best if it can be made a few days in advance.

这些甜菜检查了所有那些盒子,它们很亮,tangy,citrusy holiday dish!!

Simple Roasted Beets with Citrus

Pictured above – the main ingredients – I told you this one would be simple!!

Simple Roasted Beets with Citrus

Roast the beets,toss them with splashes of sherry (or balsamic) vinegar,juice from part of the orange,徳赢vwin捕鱼游戏lemon juice,and a few pinches of salt and pepper.提前几天这样做,and when you're ready to serve,assemble the plate with orange segments,zest peels,and a few sprigs of watercress or arugula.To make it especially delicious,top with a little flaky Maldon Sea salt.

If you want to jazz it upevenmore,add some crushed,toasted pistachios and some feta or goat cheese.Or just keep it simple because it's so good just like this :):

Simple Roasted Beets with Citrus
Serves: serves 4 as a side
  • 6 to 8 small-to-medium red and/or yellow beets
  • Extra-virgin olive oil,for drizzling
  • 1大脐橙
  • Sherry vinegar or balsamic vinegar,for drizzling
  • Juice of ½ 徳赢vwin捕鱼游戏lemon,或品尝
  • Handful of watercress leaves (or arugula or microgreens)
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Few pinches of flaky sea salt,比如莫尔登,optional
  • Goat or feta cheese
  • 切碎的核桃或开心果
  1. 把烤箱预热到400°F。
  2. Place each beet on a piece of foil and drizzle generously with olive oil and pinches of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.Wrap the beets in the foil and roast on a baking sheet for 35 to 60 minutes,或者直到柔软和叉子变软。时间将取决于甜菜的大小和新鲜度。Remove the beets from the oven,remove the foil,and set aside to cool.当他们冷静下来时,peel the skins.我喜欢把它们放在自来水里,用手把皮滑下来。
  3. Use a citrus peeler to peel long strips around the orange,avoiding the white pith.Grated zest would work here also.把橙子切成片,剩下的楔子留着挤压。
  4. Slice the beets into 1"wedges or chunks and place them in a bowl.If you're using red and yellow beets,place each color into separate bowls so the red beets don't stain the yellow beets.
  5. Drizzle with olive oil and sherry vinegar,then add the 徳赢vwin捕鱼游戏lemon juice,orange juice squeezed from the remaining wedge,and a few pinches of salt and pepper and toss.Chill until ready to serve.
  6. 上菜前先尝一尝,再用盐调味(片状海盐,if using) and pepper or more vinegar (for more tang),橙色,或柠檬徳赢vwin捕鱼游戏汁,as desired.
  7. Serve on a platter with the orange segments,watercress,and citrus curls.

    This is one of my favorite salads to order in a restaurant so I was happy to have this recipe.I did slice my beets and I used goat cheese and was a big hit.I think next time I will do it in chunks rather than slicing.
