Pioneer Woman Roasted Beets Recipe

Beet is one of my favorite vegetables. Beets are a nutritious and flavorful vegetable that may be enjoyed raw, roasted, or in a smoothie.

My go-to method for cooking fresh beets is this recipe for Balsamic Roasted Beets. Their inherent sweetness is brought out by the roasting process and amplified by the addition of honey and balsamic vinegar. Beets are at their most tender when roasted (not mushy like boiled beets). If you’re a fan of roasted vegetables like I am, you won’t want to miss this recipe for roasted broccoli, or these for balsamic roasted Brussels sprouts, or these for parmesan roasted green beans.

Even my picky eaters enjoy these simple roasted beets because they taste like candy. In addition, they are safe for those following a Paleo or vegan diet as well as those avoiding gluten and dairy.

Are Beets Good For You?

Yes,  there are several health advantages of eating beets, both raw and cooked.

  • High in nutrients and low in calories
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Nitrates are in abundance. They assist in reducing blood pressure and boosting performance in sports.
  • Excellent source of fiber for improved digestion.
  • Loaded with disease-fighting antioxidants

It’s clear that adding beets to our diets would be beneficial. I make it a point to eat as many beets as possible, and I’ve been known to purchase a salad or entrée at a restaurant only because the word “beet” appears in either the description or the title. I can now enjoy the flavor of fresh beets without leaving the comfort of my own house, thanks to this roasted beet recipe.

Pioneer Woman Roasted Beets Ingredients

  • Fresh Beets. This dish for roasted beets is a delicious way to enjoy fresh beets while still getting all the health benefits of eating them in their natural state. Although drained canned beets might work, fresh beets are preferable. In terms of aesthetics, feel free to use whatever beet color (or a combination of hues) you choose!
  • Olive Oil. For the greatest results, substitute high-quality olive oil. Any oil that doesn’t provide a strong flavor, such as avocado oil, canola oil, etc. Works perfectly for this dish. Use a flavored olive oil, or another oil like walnut oil, to give your dish some more zing.
  • Balsamic Vinegar. Yes, I really do love balsamic vinegar that much. Extremely. Aside from high-quality balsamic vinegar, I don’t advocate any other pricey cupboard essentials. The best balsamic vinegar is one that is thick and has a mild, natural sweetness. Your dish won’t come out as well if the vinegar you choose has a watery consistency instead of a syrupy one and a sour flavor. To acquire the greatest taste of balsamic vinegar, you’ll need to pay more than $5 for each bottle.
  • Sea Salt. I think this roasted beets dish would benefit from using fine sea salt. On the other hand, flavored salts (like garlic salt) are also fantastic if you’re looking to spice things up a bit.
  • Honey. If you’re looking for a vegan option, use 100% pure maple syrup. You won’t need any added sugar if you use the finest balsamic vinegar. But if you sweeten them with honey or syrup, you’ll find that your children are much more willing to try and even like these roasted beets.

Is It Necessary To Peel Beets Before Roasting Them?

I would recommend waiting to remove the skin of the whole beets until after roasting. When fresh beets are prepared in advance by peeling and slicing them before they are roasted, the baking time is cut in half and the procedure moves along much more rapidly.

My recipe card describes how to prepare this dish by roasting entire beets, then peeling and chopping them before cooking them again with balsamic vinegar. To begin the recipe, do this. I would not suggest that method for cooking these balsamic roasted beets due to the extra time it would take. However, this balsamic roasted beet meal is best prepared in little quantities, so if you’re roasting a huge lot of beets but only need a taste, that could be the best way to go!

How To Make Pioneer Woman Roasted Beets

  • Turn the temperature in the oven up to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Coat a big baking sheet or dish with cooking spray, then put it aside.
  • Be sure to peel the beets before you cut them into 1″ pieces.
  • Mix sea salt and olive oil together in a bowl, then toss in the beets.
  • Evenly spread onto the bottom of a baking dish that has been buttered.
  • Bake for 15–20 minutes in an oven that has been preheated.
  • After 15-20 minutes, give the beets a toss and continue baking for another 10 minutes, or until they are tender when touched.
  • Combine the honey and balsamic vinegar in a mixing bowl.
  • After thirty minutes, take the beets from the oven and place them in a baking dish. At this point, you should add the honey and vinegar combination that you prepared earlier.
  • Keep stirring until all of the beets are completely covered in the coating.
  • Place back in the oven for another ten minutes, stirring once halfway through the cooking time.
  • Roast the beets until the balsamic vinegar and honey mixture is thick enough to coat them and is no longer runny.
  • After removing from the oven, serve while still warm or store for later use as a topping for your favorite salads.
