Ingredients

  • ½ pound 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.
