Earthy Roasted Beets w/ith Tahini and Capers
Let the beets drop! We love earthy sweet beets. Beets are an excellent source of iron and fiber. Sesames are an ideal source of plant-protein, healthy fat, and calcium! Together they make a colorful side dish that will leave you energized and satisfied.
4 medium beet roots
4 tbsp capers
1 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp Fun Sesames Tahini
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Rinse beets and then wrap each beet completely up into foil. Place on a baking sheet and bake for anywhere from 45-90 minutes, depending on size of the beet. Remove from oven when thoroughly cooked. Beets are ready when you can easily pierce with a fork. Allow beets to cool and carefully transfer to a cutting board. Slice the root end and top of the beet. Using a kitchen towel, or paper towel, rub the skin from the beet. It should easily come off. Discard. Slice each beet into ¼ inch medallions. Then toss in a bowl with 1 tbsp of olive oil, capers, salt and pepper.
Plate and drizzle with tahini or leave out in a separately bowl and allow guests to drizzle over their dish, individually.
