Roasted Baby Golden Beets with Goat Cheese and Honey Balsamic Glaze

This easy side dish is bright, fresh and bursting with flavor!

Ingredients:
1 bunch baby golden beets, trimmed and scrubbed
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional, for garnish)
Honey balsamic glaze (store-bought or homemade*)
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Preheat your oven to 400°. Place the trimmed and scrubbed baby golden beets on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, tossing to coat evenly.

2. Roast the beets in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Cooking time may vary depending on the size of your baby beets.

3. Once roasted, remove the beets from the oven and let them cool slightly. While the beets are still warm, gently rub off the skins using a paper towel or your fingers (wearing gloves if desired). The skins should come off easily due to roasting.

4. Arrange the peeled roasted baby golden beets on a serving platter or individual plates. Sprinkle crumbled goat cheese over the beets. Drizzle honey balsamic glaze generously over the beets and goat cheese. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired for added color and freshness.

*Note: To make a simple homemade honey balsamic glaze, combine equal parts balsamic vinegar and honey in a small saucepan. Simmer over low heat until the mixture thickens slightly, then remove from heat and let cool before using. Adjust sweetness to taste if needed.
