How To Roast Beets Easy

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375F.
  2. Wash and pat dry beets with a kitchen paper towel.
  3. Slice the beet tops off. Cut the beets in half if your beets are too big.
  4. Add beets, olive oil, and a pinch of sea salt in a large bowl. Toss beets and evenly coat.
  5. Layer beets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Add 1/4 inch of water to the pan.
  6. Place beets into the oven and roast for approximately 45 minutes or until the beets are fork tender.
  7. Remove from oven and let rest.
  8. Once the beets cool to room temperature, place the beets under cold running water and slide the peels off.
  9. Pro Tip: Wear kitchen gloves to avoid staining your hands with beet juice.
  10. Using a sharp knife, quarter beets into wedges and place them into a large mixing bowl.
  11. Add a pinch of sea salt and extra virgin olive oil. Reserve.


Assemble the Best Beet Salad with Dried Figs, Tomato and Arugula

  1. Let's assemble the delicious arugula, beets and dried fig salad recipe by adding baby arugula, thinly sliced radishes and diced tomatoes to a large bowl.
  2. Our favourite Easy Balsamic Vinegar Salad Dressing is quick to make and calls for simple ingredients. This tangy dressing is amazingly delicious!
  3. When ready to mix up your arugula, fig and tomato salad, place beets on top and drizzle salad dressing onto the greens.
  4. Pro Tip: I recommend adding salad dressing to the serving bowl with just the right amount of salad.
  5. Or serve the salad dressing in a small bowl as a side salad. This way, the salad will not get soggy and stay fresh and extra crunchy as leftovers in the fridge.

Optional Add-Ons To Your Own Preferences

  1. I like adding thinly sliced red onions to add extra zip to the salad.
  2. Experiment and top with plant-based or dairy soft cheeses and turn it into an arugula goat cheese salad with beets and apples.
  3. Scatter candied walnuts or pecans, or pine nuts for extra crunch.
  4. Top your hearty green salad with alfalfa sprouts (did you know you can grow alfalfa sprouts quickly at home?) and chia seeds.
