Lemon-Herb Roasted Beets

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/lemon_herb_roasted_beets.html

From EatingWell:  September/October 2009

We love how roasting brings out the sweet flavor of beets. Golden beets look especially pretty when tossed with the fresh herb and lemon seasoning mix, but any type of beets will work in this recipe. If you’re a lemon lover, be sure to add the squeeze of fresh lemon juice after the beets are roasted.

4 servings, about 2/3 cup each | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

  1. Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 450°F.

  3. Spread the beets evenly on a rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Roast, stirring once or twice, until the beets are tender and browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Toss the roasted vegetables with lemon juice, if using.
