Can you name this vegetable? Neither could I. I literally had to look it up. My son comes home with a bag full of produce each week from a local CSA. Sometimes what's in the bag is a mystery to us.
Guess what? They were beets! Holy smokes I've never seen what a beet looks like for real. I've only seen the canned versions of them and never really like them. But they were super easy to make and tasted yummy. I washed them and wrapped them in tin foil. Placed them on a center rack in the oven and baked them at 375 for 1.5 hours. Once they cooled, I peeled them with a potato peeler and sliced them. I served them with a little salt. You can also add pepper or cumin for more flavor.
My daughter LOVED them, but this picture is just hysterical. Bib required.
Now go try some beets. I think they are pretty good for you!
