Baked Beets With Jalapeño

beet gold bakedHere’s a naturally sweet, slight spicy side dish. Although, I have been known to serve these at the end of a meal, a dessert of sorts.

Select a variety of small beets, I like to use some golden, some red. If you cannot find small ones, cut large ones in half. Peel the beets and place each one on a square of aluminum foil. Bring the sides of the foil up just enough to keep in moisture and drizzle each beet with balsamic vinegar. Top each one with a few slices of fresh jalapeño, and seal the foil around the beet. Place the foil wrapped beets in a baking pan just in case they leak.

Bake them a 350 degree oven until they feel tender, usually 30-50 minutes but it depends on the size. You can check them by squeezing them or taking one of the larger ones and piercing it with a fork.

Serve immediately! Although… chopping them the following day turns them into a great beet salad!

Until next time… Release YOUR Bon Vivan and Savor Your Life!
