French Baked Beets (Plus Herbes de Provence)

Liven up your dinner table with a deep-hued dish of beets, baked French-style. Plus those vivid colors aren't just for show; the pigments are actually full of potent antioxidants. You may be surprised at how great these beets taste. With only 80 calories per serving this colorful dish makes an excellent addition to any meal. Rich in folate and potassium, beets are also a good source of fiber and offer a world of proven health benefits.


1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic, peeled, crushed
1/2 tsp. herbes de Provence*
1 tsp. fresh rosemary, chopped
6 fresh medium beets, peeled, cut into 1/8-inch thick slices
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

(As always, choose organic content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe.)


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. To avoid staining your hands and workspace, wear rubber gloves and use plastic wrap to cover the counter.

3. In medium bowl, mix vinegar, garlic, herbes de Provence and rosemary. Place beets in mixture and marinate for 30 minutes.

4. Place beets and marinade in 7 x 11 glass baking dish. Cover with foil and bake 35-40 minutes, or until beets are tender. Remove beets, place on a serving dish and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Note: You can reserve the extra sauce and blend with olive oil for a tasty salad dressing.
