Ingredients

  • 3 large beets peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice fresh
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons basil fresh, chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine the beets, olive oil, and salt. Toss well and spread in an even layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until beets are soft and roasted.
