Find Out Why Roasted Vegetables Taste the BEST (Forget Steaming!)
Beets are not usually mentioned when someone asks, "what's your favorite vegetable?" but beets are a highly nutritious (AND delicious) veggie packed with potassium, fiber, vitamin C and iron. Roasting beets, or any vegetable for that matter, gives them a hearty and crunchy texture and adding ingredients like olive oil and herbs adds extra flavor and variety to the vegetables. Try this recipe and you'll see why roasted beets might just be your new fave:
