Description

Roast your own beets at home with less fuss by using your slow cooker – no need to turn on your oven! This method takes very little effort and delivers the same flavor as oven roasted beets. It creates beautifully tender beets – perfect for adding to salads!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch beets, washed, greens trimmed off (and preferably saved to prepare this dish!)
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • sea salt & freshly cracked black pepper
  • aluminum foil

Instructions

  1. Tear pieces of foil large enough to completely enclose each beet. Lay one piece of foil underneath each beet and drizzle each with a little bit of oil, sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt and a few grinds of black pepper.
  2. Wrap each beet tightly in foil. You can double wrap them if they don’t completely close, this way they will cook properly and won’t make a mess in your slow cooker.
  3. Place beets inside your slow cooker, cover and cook on high for 3-5 hours, or until tender. Remove from foil packets and slide the skin off, if desired (I didn’t).
