How to Roast and Peel Beets

Beets are the quintessential retro veggie that have had a major comeback in recent years. Sort of like brussels sprouts. They didn’t get much love for a ages, and then all of a sudden…bam…they are everywhereIt’s like we all wised up and realized we were neglecting some of the best veggies out there.


They’re so easy to make too! After roasting in the oven, they are ready to be used in any number of salads  and side dishes. The only downside is the messy factor when preparing them…if you’re not careful, you’ll be walking around with red fingertips for a while…that is, unless you try my nifty peeling trick below…

      I used to be too…mostly because the peeling of them was so tricky. Learning that paper towel trick was priceless…makes the job so much easier! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  2. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it
    was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any helpful hints for novice blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
