Roasting brings out the sweetness in the beets and infuses them with the thyme. The result is a delicious, easy, rave-worthy side dish.
- 1 pound beets, peeled and cut into 1-inch dice
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 to 4 sprigs thyme
- Sea salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. On a rimmed baking sheet, place a sheet of aluminum foil that stretches the length of the baking sheet. Pile the beets in the center and tuck the sprigs of thyme in the stack in different sections; drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
- To make a sealed packet, turn the baking sheet so that you are belly up to the long side. Grab each end of the aluminum foil and pull together. Roll the two sheets together, creating a long seal. Roll up each remaining side of the foil.
- Place inside the preheated oven. Cook for 1 hour. Let stand for 10 minutes or so. Be careful opening the packet, a lot of hot steam will be trapped inside.
- Serve warm.
