Roasted Beets

Roasted Beets are baked with onion and rosemary to infuse with herbs and aromatics and concentrate the flavor.

Beet burger

My ballet teacher, Alice Ashford, took my sister Sharon and I to lunch after our advanced ballet class. Without much experience at restaurants I’m really glad Sharon ordered a burger for me. It came on a plate with a lettuce leaf and a thin slice of tomato. I thought it was a tomato, but no, a slice of boiled beet. At the time, I didn’t really know much about beets. Sharon placed her red beet slice and crispy lettuce on her burger. Mimicking everything Sharon did, I dressed my hamburger the same way. Wow, it tasted really good. It gave the sandwich a similar juiciness as a slice of raw tomato.

Whole Roasted BeetsI’ve never been suspect of beets, a rich, red, root vegetable. Roasting is my favorite cooking method to build and concentrate its flavor. It only takes a minute or two to prep and tuck them away in the oven to roast while busy cooking other dishes. Once tender they’re peeled and served as a nutrient rich side dish or reconvert them into the best Tarragon Pickled Beets on the planet.

Recipe: Roasted Beets

Prep Time: 3 Minutes | Cook Time: 70 Minutes | Yield: 8 Servings | Level: Easy

Roasting Beets

  • 8 medium beets, washed with 1-inch stems
  • 1 medium onion, cut in 8 chunks
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, snipped in pieces
  • 1 Tbsp oil olive

Special Equipment – 9×13 baking dish

1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2 Line a 9×13 baking dish with foil. Place the beets, onions and rosemary in a single layer then drizzle with oil. Cover with another piece of foil.

Beets Roasted3 Roast for 70 minutes until beets are knife tender.

4 Let stand until cool enough to handle then peel. Leave whole or slice and serve warm.

Knife Tender versus Fork Tender – Because a knife slides in easier than a fork, knife tender doneness has a little more texture than fork tender doneness. If you like them softer, test with a fork.

Use these beets to make Tarragon Pickled Beets.

Dice beets and serve on a salad.

Roast 10-12 golden baby beets with 1-inch stems for 45-50 minutes or until knife tender, then make Champagne Pickled Golden Beets.

Polenta with sausage-tomato sauce topped with melty fontina cheese.

The Sauce: Sausage-Tomato Sauce – Diced tomatoes and ground sausage seasoned and simmered with garlic, rosemary and oregano.

Oliver’s gruel not homemade polenta

Is it worth the waiting for
Till we reach eighty-four?
All we ever get is gruel.
Everyday we say a prayer
Will they change the bill of fare?
Still we get the same old gruel.

Homemade polenta isn’t in the same solar system as Oliver’s gruel from the 1968 hit musical “Oliver”. But polenta has much the same texture as porridge, mush and grits. These may conjure memories of dishes you’ve resisted tasting. Wait no longer. Polenta in this Italian-inspired dish has gourmet appeal and texture. The right yin yang balance of one part polenta grits to almost five parts liquid stands up in the sausage-tomato sauce.

Rather than bake, fry or grill thick polenta, heat it in this sausage tomato sauce doused with shredded cheese. Fontina Polentina garnished with parsleyhas sharp, nutty flavor and when exposed to heat, melts into a creamy layer of stretchy cheese.

I’ve been making versions of this dish for months; more sauce, thicker polenta, fresh versus dried herbs, with or without sausage. The final dish is comfort food that tastes gourmet. Polentina, a savory marriage of polenta and fontina cheese.

4 Meanwhile brown sausage on medium heat in a large skillet. Add garlic, rosemary, oregano and cook for 30 seconds.

5 Add diced tomatoes, water and bring to a boil, then simmer for 10-15 minutes. Season with salt to taste.

Sprinkle Cheese on Polenta6 Cut the polenta in 8 squares and evenly lay in the tomato mixture. Sprinkle polenta with fontina. Cover and cook for 3-5 minutes to heat polenta and melt cheese. Dust with parsley and serve.

Polenta can be made with cornmeal rather polenta grits but it has a smoother texture.

Substitute an open bowl or small saucepan or frying pan for the 5×9 or 6×8 container. Then scoop out 8 equal portions of cooled polenta into the sausage tomato sauce.

Substitute 1 24-ounce tube of pre-cooked polenta sliced into 8 rounds for homemade polenta.

Use 2 fat links of sausage squeezed out of the tubes. Buy sausage when on sale and freeze in individual snack baggies, then in a large freezer zipper bag. Defrost 2 for this dish.

Serve this rustic dish with a fresh green side salad.

When making polenta, double the recipe and save half in the fridge for Polentina later in the week.
