This is incredibly earthy and satisfying, and couldn’t be any simpler.

Roast beets (covered in foil) until tender – 45 minutes to an hour. Remove from foil and allow to cool. Peel the beets and dice/slice/cube.

Sprinkle the beets with crumbled goat cheese.

Drizzle with good olive oil, and add a touch of freshly-ground black pepper.

There’s so much more you could do with this recipe (adding herbs, garlic, nuts, etc), but it truly doesn’t need anything else.

If you haven’t tried beets, what are you waiting for?
