Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Place the beets in a large saucepan and cover with 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the beets are just tender, about 30 minutes. Drain, and allow the beets to cool until you are able to handle them. Peel and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices, then toss with the pesto in a bowl.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  3. Spread the beets out onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until the beets are hot and have turned slightly brown around the edges, 10 to 15 minutes.

I like this cooking method for beets although I use the microwave rather than the stove top. How the recipe turns out, though, will depend on your pesto. Mine is strongly garlic and I found the garlic clashed with the beet rather than complementing it. I prefer a mix of olive oil, salt, pepper and either sage or thyme rather than the pesto. YMMV.

I was more interested in the method in this recipe as opposed to the ingredients. I don't have pesto right now, and although I could have made it, I didn't really feel like it. I just used minced garlic instead, and it was a hit. These beets are good roasted! Thanks for the recipe!

All the pesto melted away during cooking, so these just tasted like roasted beets.
