Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Wrap each beet individually in aluminum foil, and place onto a baking sheet.
  2. Bake beets in preheated oven until easily pierced with a fork, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Once done, remove from oven, and allow to cool until you can handle them. Peel beets, and cut into 1/4 inch slices.
  3. While the beets are roasting, whisk together shallot, parsley, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and red wine vinegar in a bowl until blended; season to taste with salt and pepper, and set aside.
  4. To assemble the dish, place the warm, sliced beets onto a serving dish, pour vinaigrette over the beets, and sprinkle with feta cheese before serving.

really great and easy. I was short on time so microwaved the beets instead (10 minutes on high). Thank you!

I think I just don't like beets. I followed the instructions... and I found a recipe b/c I decided to grow them in my garden, but I wasn't a huge fan. I may just not be a beet-liker.

Very, very good! It was way too hot to turn on the oven, so instead I peeled and cubed the beets, mixed together everything except the parsley and feta and wrapped in a double thickness foil pouch - roasted on the grill for about 15 minutes or so, then sprinkled with the parsley and feta. DELICIOUS! And good cold, too, as I'm still picking on the leftovers.

The best beets we've ever eaten. I used green onions instead of shallots and I didn't have wine vinegar so used balsamic instead. These were so good we were craving them the following day and I think they were even better. Until yesterday I thought canned beets grew on trees! They were much easier to cook than I imagined. This will be a regular recipe for us.

Just tried this recipe and loved it! I did make two changes though. I'm not a fan of raw onion flavor, so I carmelized the shallots in some of the olive oil first, and added a little garlic (who doesn't need more garlic?). The carmelization really bought out the sweetness in the shallots and balanced with the saltiness from the cheese and the tang of the vinegars.

made as written--used green onions instead of shallots. it was not only tasty, but has a great presentation. thanks! i've also seen versions with pine nuts and/or arugula.

It is very rare to get a good beet recipe. This is a real good one - made it tonight, will make it again. My two and half year old also gobbled it up. Next time I will try to sprinkle some walnuts.

This recipe was delicious. It even enticed my feta-loving, beet-skeptical boyfriend. I used minced garlic and onion instead of the shallot, and it turned out great. It's equally good hot and fresh, or as cold leftovers.
