Serves 4

• 4 medium beets, washed, peeled, and diced into roughly 1-inch pieces
• 1 tablespoon canola oil
• Salt (optional) and pepper to taste
• 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
• 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh parsley

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Toss the beets with oil, salt (if desired), and pepper to coat evenly.

Place the beets in a baking dish and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork.

Remove the beets from the oven, add vinegar, and mix right away with a spatula, scraping any caramelized bits off the bottom of the dish.

Transfer beets to a serving dish, garnish with fresh parsley, and serve.
