Let’s Talk Beets
When beets are brought into the discussion, they are usually something you love or you hate. BUT, you can’t make up your mind until you try them this way!
Not only do beets have a natural sweetness, but they are loaded full of all sorts of good things for you. So, we are making a side dish that is not only decadent, but healthy! Who would’ve thought?
I love layering classic red beets with the beautiful golden beets. Remember, you eat with your eyes first! And this is for sure a beauty.
If you can’t find golden beets (I have been able to find them at my local grocery store and Whole Foods), then sub them for regular red beets. It will still be good!
Thinly slicing the beets allows them to cook quickly, so you don’t have to worry about hours of cooking just for some beets. You also don’t need to peel them if the peel is in pretty good shape! Just wash them off good and you are set to go.
Not only is this side dish delicious and beautiful to look at, but you only need a few simple ingredients to pull it together! Here’s what you need:
- Red beets
- Golden beets
- Brown sugar
- Fresh rosemary
- Fresh thyme
Layer the beets together, pour over the brown sugar herb butter and roast until perfectly done and candied!
Brown Sugar Herb Butter Roasted Beets is a side dish that is going to surprise you! It’s beautiful to look at and deliciously scrumptious to eat. I love how naturally sweet the beets are (especially the golden ones!). Let’s make beets cool again!
