Its been almost 2 weeks of being on crutches with a fractured foot. Luckily, I have an amazing husband who has been helping me out around the house and treating me to some delicious meals as he has taken over cooking for the family. So, this time around I didn’t have to “search” very far for a good recipe. This past week for lunch he has been throwing together this recipe and it is so simple and delicious!! As a plus, you can roast the beets ahead of time and use them as you please until they are gone. Here’s what you need.

Roasted Beets with Goat Cheese

A big bunch of beets

Goat cheese

salt and pepper

additional toppings if you like (bacon, thyme etc.) but I like my plain

Apologies for the horrible picture. They really look a lot prettier than this.

Set your oven to 375 degrees. If the beets are really large cut them in half. Coat the beets with a little olive oil. Create a foil packet for your beets. Place the beets on a pan lined with foil.  Roast until done, about  60-90 minutes depending on size until you can easily pierce with a fork. After they cool a bit you should be able to easily peel the skin off with your hands and slice to desired thickness. Using the amount of slices you want, place them back on the sheet pan. Top them with some goat cheese (and bacon/thyme etc. if you like). Put under the broiler for 5 min.

Any remaining beets you can place in a bowl and cover and keep in the fridge.

As a side note you can also use the roasted beets in this yummy recipe for a Penne Pasta with Roasted Beet Sauce. Sorry, I don’t have a picture but I have made it twice and it’s excellent.

A special thanks to my husband, Josh, for keeping the house together while I hobble around on crutches.

From my searches to your dishes. Enjoy!
