Tarragon beets from the oven

By October 6, 2016Recipes

Beets from the oven are always a success. Even if you season them only with a bit of salt and oil. Even if you forget about them and keep them too long in the oven. Even if you don’t peel them. It is a product which is impossible to spoil.

I love the combination of sweet beets and the tarragon. Both fresh and dried tarragon work well. For this recipe I used beets of two colours, velvet and yellow, but any sort available is fine. Baking in the closed foil “bag” results in a very juicy texture. Yummy!

Ingredients (serves four)

  • Beetroots – 500 g (3-4 pcs.)
  • Vegetable oil – 1 tbsp
  • A pinch of salt
  • Fresh or dried tarragon to taste

How to cook

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Wash and peel the beets. Cut into slices.
  3. Season with olive oil and salt, stir.
  4. Transfer into a list of aluminium foil. Sprinkle with tarragon. Close the ends of the foil. We are cooking the beets in the closed foil “bag”.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes.
