Beets are a favorite at our house; they taste so good and they are a great choice for a nutrient-dense and moderately starchy side dish. Plus, they bring a touch of bright colors to your plate! Roasted beets pair well with any kind of leafy and/or green vegetables like chard, kale, lettuce, bok choy, broccoli, or leeks.
This is a recipe I prepare quite often, and always in large quantities, so that we can enjoy the leftovers for several meals. There is a little bit of chopping involved, but once you pop the beets in the oven, there isn’t much to do, which makes it doable even for a weeknight dinner! My kind of dish!
Oven roasted beets
with herbes de Provence
To sprinkle over the vegetables, I am using my own mix of herbes de Provence. It is quite easy to prepare yourself in advance and it will keep a long time stored in an airtight container. You can use herbes de Provence on vegetables, meat, and even fish!
