  • 4 Beets, cleaned, peeled, and sliced
  • 4-6 tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves of Fresh Garlic, left whole ("in camicia") or minced for intensified flavor
  • 2 tablespoons of Salt, adjust to taste
  • 4 sprigs of Rosemary, leaves finely chopped


  • Preheat Oven:
        • Commence by preheating your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (230 degrees Celsius).
  • Mix Ingredients:
        • In a large mixing bowl, combine the beets, olive oil, garlic (whole or minced, based on preference), finely chopped rosemary leaves, and salt. Toss the ingredients until the beets are thoroughly coated with the oil and seasonings.
  • Roast Beets:
        • Transfer the beet mixture into the pan, and return the pan to the oven.
  • Bake:
        • Roast the beets in the preheated oven for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until they are fork-tender consistency. Midway through the baking duration, stir or flip to ensure even browning on all sides.
  • Serve:
      • Once the beets attain perfection in roasting, remove them from the oven. Best served hot, garnished with an additional sprinkle of rosemary for an extra touch of flavor.

    Pro Tip:
