Tip: To roast beets, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wash and trim beets; pat dry with paper towels. Wrap beets in foil. Roast 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours or until tender. Remove from oven; cool slightly. Unwrap beets. While holding a beet under cool running water, slip off and discard skin; repeat with remaining beets. Place beets in a covered container, chill 1 to 24 hours.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
