Prior to making this side dish, I did not know how to roast beets or even how to cook fresh beets at all! My beet-eating experience had been limited to putting fresh beets in a smoothie and a certain canned beet dish that my mom is fond of making (that I didn’t care for as a kid AT ALL).

Now that I know how to roast beets and flavor them well, I can eat them without wishing I was eating something else. Who else is guilty of that when it comes to eating your veggies? Hopefully, it’s not just me.
