Roasted Beet Slices

“Simple, but good” might be how I describe our approach to recipes here at Tinicum CSA. After all, it’s pretty great to take a basic, delicious vegetable and turn it into a versatile side dish. If you’re wondering what to do with beets, this may be a gateway to enjoying them. This recipe is very similar to one of our sweet potato recipes.


  • Several Beets, 1/2 inch slices
  • Oil, for coating a cookie sheet
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Preparation

    1. Cut off the tops and bottoms of the beets, and scrub them. You can peel them, but I don’t bother.

    2. Grease your cookie sheet with your preferred oil or ghee.

    3. Lay out the beet slices on the cookie sheet and sprinkle with salt & pepper.

    4. Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes or until soft. At the half way point, flip them using a spatula and a fork.

    5. Enjoy as a side dish. Here, they are featured with sautéed kale and a hamburger topped with cheddar & fresh arugula.
