When I first announced I would be making beets for dinner, my husband was not at all happy. He grew up eating canned mushy beets with no flavor, so just the mere mention of them made him cringe. After I explained that I would be roasting the beets and serving them with a citrus glaze, he was willing to give them a try. This recipe for oven roasted beets is super simple to pull together and is great served with chicken or pork. Roasting the beets enhances their flavor while the simple citrus glaze adds a touch of freshness. Trust me, your family will love them. After the first bite my husband had a whole new appreciation for beets. MORE + LESS -
