It’s delicious! It’s also good when you combine all of the above ingredients with spinach to make a spinach/beet salad. You can even add warm, carmelized red onion to the salad to wilt the spinach just a bit.

My oven runs hot, so I set it to 350, but 375 would be about right if your oven is calibrated properly. The bruschetta sounds delicious; I’ll have to try that next.

Sounds delightful. What temperature do you set the oven to? About 375?

As for the tops, I like to chop them up and make a bruschetta with them — it’s great in sandwiches, on crusty bread and topping fish. Mmm.

I made two large bunches last night, so we had plenty of leftovers. I like to roast the whole, unpeeled beets (wrapped in foil, with a bit of salt) for an hour or more and then peel and dice them, adding just salt and pepper. I chop the tops and sautee them with diced yellow onions and olive oil. Delightful! Pickled beets with lots of sweet onions are another family favorite. My godmother always said that beets aided digestion, as well as being full of fiber and vitamins. I just love the taste.
