Roast Beet Squares

Nothing could be sweeter and have more texture than roasted beets.

I've been making them for Kenya since he got his first teeth in and he has always loved them. It was so funny to watch him eat these when he was teething because he would roll them around in his mouth, massaging his gums.

Another fun part about beets is that they come in so many colors. My kids have always been taken with foods that are bright in color or cut in interesting shapes. My personal favorites are the orange/yellow ones, but the "candy cane" beets (with their white and red stripes) have a uniquely sweet flavor. Red beets, usually the easiest to find are great too, but beware that the red color can get all over your hands (and your baby's which in turn will get all over you).

Beets are rich in calcium, important for healthy bones and teeth, are full of flavonoids and other anti carcinogenic compounds as well as a great immune booster in your and your kids' diet. The recipe for beet puree is the same as these roast beets except that you cut them into little bite size squares.

Prep Time: 1 mins Cook Time: 1 mins

egg free

nut free

dairy free

gluten free

Ingredients

  • 2 Beets

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Take a piece of tin foil and fold it in half.

3. Place beets on one side of the foil and cover the beets like a book. Pinch the edges to fully seal the package (this way they will steam in the oven).

4. Bake for 1 hour.

5. Open foil, let cool beets to the touch.

6. Take a ziplock or a gloves and peel the beets (this prevents your hands from getting stained). The skin should slide right off.

7. Cool the beets, cut into small cubes and serve.

*Don’t toss the tops of the beets called beet greens. The greens are also good finger food or you could substitute them for any of the greens in the weelicious purees. Just steam the greens in a pot over boiling water for 4-5 minutes or until the stems are tender. Cool and serve.

    My name is Jane Loduca from Dutch. I love staking huge money on lotto so i could be a boss lady but yet i kept on losing. My mind set was always on a positive side of it, I always want my dream to come to pass but without becoming a winner in it, it all crumbled. I read on several books on how to become a lotto winner, following every procedures but yet it just look like pouring water on rock. I felt like giving up not until i searched over and over again and i came across DR ODINANI OWELLE who helped me achieved my dreams and today i have no regret of been a lotto player. I wrote to DR ODINANI OWELLE through his email [email protected]), he gave listening ears to me and he wrote back, giving me six (6) lucky numbers to stake on. Just still on my usual skating abilities, i've always staked with huge amount of money and i staked again. I didn't get it all until the lotto result came out and the six (6) lucky numbers giving to me by DR ODINANI OWELLE was there too. I was overwhelmed and immediately i was credited. To all lotto players out there who felt its over, please don't waist your time anymore. Contact DR ODINANI OWELLE to give you lucky lotto numbers ([email protected])
