Beet Candy

If you never thought your vegetables could satisfy a sweet tooth, think again. Choose small beets for this simple roasted beets recipe or candy beets if you can get them, and enjoy vegetables in a way you never have before.

Ingredients

  • ½ lb. beet roots, scrubbed and thinly sliced
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil

Directions

  1. Preheat the over to 450ºF. Line a baking pan with a piece of parchment paper.
  2. Put the beet slices in a mixing bowl and toss thoroughly with the salt, thyme, and olive oil. Arrange the slices evenly on the pan.
  3. Roast until the beets are tender and shrunken (10-18 minutes).
  4. Serve warm or cold. Warm, they’ll be crispy like chips. Cool, they’ll be more like fruit leather.
