Citrus Marinated Beets
If you’ve never tried beets because you’ve been afraid of them, or were forced against your will to eat them as a kid (we hear you!), this recipe will forever change your mind about this beautiful deep red veggie. Plus, what’s not to like about beets when they get marinated in Uncle Matt’s Organic OJ? Yum!
1/2 lb organic beets washed, peeled, and quartered into chunks
1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil avocado oil (or coconut oil)
1/3 cup Uncle Matt’s Organic orange juice
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Arrange the organic beet chunks on a cookie/sheet pan, lined with non-stick aluminum foil (optional for easy clean up). Drizzle the olive or avocado oil over the beets, and then use your hands to toss and blend well.
Roast the beets, uncovered, for 30-35 minutes, until soft when pierced with a fork.
Once the beets are cool enough to handle, place the beets in a storage containers. Pour Uncle Matt’s Organic orange juice over the beets, and toss to coat the beets in the juice. The beets won’t be fully submerged in the orange juice.
The beets will keep in the fridge, in an air-tight container, for up to a week. Use the beets to top on salads, on a fish or chicken dish, or blended in smoothies. Or, just eat right out of the container!
Delicious… and healthy!
