Amanda Hesser, of Food52.com, shares her perfect method for roasting beets. The trick? Foil packets. I followed the instructions exactly with great success. Fair warning, my hands (and everything in my kitchen) were dyed a beautiful, beety red after I peeled the skins.
The beets found their home on rich, salty goat cheese toast, topped with peppery arugula leaves. (Thank you to StaceySnacks for the continual inspiration!)
Follow these instructions
Broiled Goat Cheese Toasts:
Lightly drizzle olive oil on thick crunchy bread, and place in oven at 400 degrees for about 5 minutes. Remove and top with a thick slice/spread of goat cheese. Please under broiler for about 3 minutes.
Place beets on top of toasts. Top with arugula leaves and drizzle with favorite balsamic vinaigrette.
