Ingredients

  • 6-7 medium-large beets, cleaned well with stems and bottoms cut off
  • Olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/3 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • Fresh dill, chopped
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • Crumbled Feta cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and lay out a piece of foil for each beet.

  2. Place each beet onto a piece of foil. Drizzle a small amount of oil into it and wrap each beet tightly so that the steam stays in the packet.

  3. Roast for around 1 hour- check them for doneness (they should be fork tender) and if need be, bake for longer (mine took around 1 hours and 15 minutes).

  4. When the beets are done, refrigerate until they've cooled completely.

  5. Once cool, peel off the skins (they should peel off really easily with your fingers or a knife, if you'd prefer) and cut into bite-size wedges.

  6. Drizzle with a little oil and the juice of 1 lemon and toss with onion, dill, salt and pepper to taste.

  7. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Just before serving, top with crumbled Feta cheese to taste.
