Simply Roasted Beets

Property of

It’s summer time which means there are plenty of farmers markets open and tons of fresh produce. One fresh produce item has always scared me when I thought of trying to cook it…beets. It may seem crazy but I found the idea of trying to cook beets very intimidating. I had no idea where to start. Well, I can now tell you that it’s not difficult at all and it requires very little prep. Not to mention that they taste delicious when they’re done. Here is my no hassle recipe for roasted beets.


4 beets
1 ½ tablespoons Fatworks’ Pure Tallow or paleo cooking oil of your choice
Property of
½ tablespoon cumin


Heat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
Cut stock and leafs off beats and peel beets.
Cut beets into cubes (roughly ¼” thick). Place flat on baking sheet.
Heat the pure tallow in microwave and pour over beets.
Sprinkle lightly with salt, pepper and cumin, mix thoroughly.
Place baking sheet in oven to cook for about 35-45 minutes until you can stick a fork through your beats.
Remove and cool.

Take full advantage of your summer farmer’s market and enjoy a very healthy snack or meal addition.

Happy Summer!
