Roasted beets

I roasted some beets the normal way, in the oven. Here's what I did:

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Wash the beets. Cut off the top and bottom then peel the rest with a vegetable peeler. I do this wearing gloves and using my red cutting board, since beets will stain a wood cutting board.

Dice into the size you want. Mine were about 1/2".

Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Put on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes. Flip the beets over once after about 20 minutes.

I've also cooked beets in the sous vide, which works well.
