These beets are oven-roasted, which intensifies their natural sweetness, and then tossed in a tart and syrupy balsamic reduction. You can serve them as a side dish, but more often than not I just keep them in the fridge for snacking and tossing over salads. The best part is that they're good for you! Beets are a nutritional powerhouse—they cleanse the body, are chock-full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and are a great source of energy.
