    RECIPE:Herb-Roasted Beets with Blue Cheese

    Serves 6-8

    What You'll Need:

    • 12 small / 8 medium beets
    • 4 Tbsp. pure olive oil
    • 2 tsp. fresh thyme leaves, minced
    • 3 stems fresh rosemary
    • 1½ tsp. sea salt, plus another ½ tsp.
    • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 oz. blue cheese or feta cheese, cubed or crumbled

     Let's Get Cooking:

    1. Preheat the oven to 375° degrees. Trim leaves off roots and wash beets under cold water. Cut the tops off and carefully peel each beet.

    2. Cut small beets in half, and medium ones in quarters.

    3. Place the cut beets in a glass baking dish and toss with the olive oil, thyme, and sea salt. Place stems of rosemary in-between cut beets and cover with foil.

    4. Roast for 45 minutes, turning once halfway through. Increase temperature to 400° and remove foil.

    5. Continue roasting for another 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and discard rosemary stems.

    6. If desired, drizzle additional olive oil over top. Sprinkle with cheese, season with salt and pepper; serve warm.

    Optional serving suggestion: Mix with field greens, add chopped walnuts and drizzle a balsamic glaze to serve as a salad.
