CARAMELIZED ROASTED BEETS + SAUTEED BEET TOPS (REMOLACHA CARAMELIZADA CON SUS TALLOS)

BEETS 005

I am beginning to use everything a vegetable has to offer.  Take these beets…such a simple recipe that I picked up and adapted from Canadian Chef, Laura Calder.

BEETS 013

Ingredients:

3 large beets, scrubbed clean
Olive oil
honey
Salt and pepper
2 shallots, chopped
2 garlic cloves,sliced

Directions:

Heat the oven to 425°F.  Chop the tops off the beets, leaving about an inch of green on the bulb, and set aside.  Cut each beet into 4 to 6  sections  as you would an apple. Each wedge should have a little green on  top. Put the beets on a baking sheet. Drizzle over the olive oil and the honey and toss to coat well. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for about an hour.  They will be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.Meanwhile, heat a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in a  sauté pan add shallot and garlic until tender then add the chopped  green beet tops and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with the roasted beets.

    I’ve roasted many a beet, as I love them, but never with honey. Looks perfect and I love the use of the greens as well.
