A quick recipe for my Take it to work! recipe series...
Yes, I lifted a free image of beets because I am AWFUL at food photography. If you make any of my recipes and manage to take a nice picture, please comment below and I will feature it ASAP!
2 bundles of fresh beets from the produce section
Preheat oven to 350
Cut off stems and roots of beets, scrub thoroughly
Chop beets into 1-2 inch chunks and place in a large bowl
Toss beets with about 1/4 cup of olive oil, add basil and cinnamon to taste (I like adding a little more cinnamon than basil because of the natural sweetness of the beets)
Place season beets on a cookie tray and lay them out flat so they're not stacked on top of each other
Bake 20-30 minutes, until soft but not shriveled
Allow to cool, remove skins (they peel right off)
Throw them in some Tupperware and bring them to work all week! Tastes great cold and is PACKED with natural antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
