Easy Roasted Beets Side Dish
Much like the bad rap peas and brussels sprouts get, I’m convinced people don’t like beets because they’ve simply never had them prepared properly.
Roasted Beets are amazing! Tender, rich and sweet. Then baked with an orange and maple glaze, this simple side dish is a sure winner and could possibly change your mind forever.
Since roasted beets are so easy to make and also store really well in the refrigerator up to a week, making this side dish is a breeze. You can either roast your beets right before making it, or grab some out of the fridge that have already been roasted. This dish comes together in minutes, with a short bake time.

Reader Questions and Reviews
I made this as a side dish for Thanksgiving. It was a big hit, especially with me, I did not roast to absorb the liquid but rather just let them marinate in it. I ended up putting this on my salad and it acted as a dressing too. Yummy, thanks BellyFull!
