I was craving a roasted vegetable and was so happy to have come across a couple of bunches of fresh local beets!
They were so fresh, the dirt was still moist and smelled of the earth!
1) 5 medium beets or 10 small beets
2) 1 large sweet onion
3) Extra virgin olive oil
4) 2-3 sprigs of fresh rosemary
5) Your choice of Old City Salts finishing sea salts
Wash and clean your beets, then quarter and place in a large bowl. Chop your sweet onions into smaller cubes and mix in with your beets. Add your sprigs of rosemary and put in enough extra virgin olive oil to coat all pieces.
Place in the oven on a baking tray for about 45-60 minutes at 350 degrees. You want them to be well roasted, but not overdone.
At our house we put them in a large bowl and have several flavors of Old City Salt blends in salt bowls for each person to create their own finished plate!
