This is a delicious dish and simple to make. I used red beets and made this with fresh Rosemary. The natural sweetness of the beets was intensified when roasted. I recommend the squeeze of fresh lemon at the end as it enhanced the flavor even more. This is definitely one that will be a favorite at our house!

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.

I made this with some golden beets I bought at my farmer's market. I'd never cooked beets before but thought that I would give it a try. I'm so glad that I did! Instead of turning on my oven in this heat, I prepared them in a foil packet and placed them on the grill for 20-25 minutes. My husband had never had beets before and was also very impressed with the fresh taste. I used fresh rosemary and basil from my garden. This is going to be a summer staple!
These are easy to make and taste delicious! I have never had roasted beets before and loved them. I did use lemon - and fresh basil the first time. The sweetness of the beets and sourness of the lemon is mouthwatering. Tonight I am using lemon and dried rosemary.
Yum! I just made this with fresh basil and then just some italian seasoning. It was really nice with the lemon!! I plan on eating cold tomorrow with my meal. Very nice! Very easy!
