Beets and Simple Beet Salad

I must tell you this is the first time I have cooked beets before peeling them. 
This is the ticket, I think I was doing it all wrong before.  
Just wash them and you'll peel them later.

The magic trio: salt, pepper and extra virgin virgin olive oil...


Roast for about an hour or more.  Tray filled with an inch or so of water, covered in tin foil.

Isn't this amazing!   It was a heart shaped beet!  And the color was to die for.  This was a golden beet.
Aah such a cute lil heart.
A couple more heart pictures...

Here are the beets after they came out of the oven and after they have been peeled.  
Such a striking bowl. 

Feta, more olive oil and a bowl.

Time to cut them into beautiful wedges.

This is combo of golden beets and red beets.
Look at the markings, aren't they amazing?

Just a couple more shots because they are that pretty.

Next you add some fresh lemon.


Here I am making an extra dressing of lemon juice and olive oil.

And serve over greens.

Beets are super healthy for you, and they are full of fiber, a nice bonus.
