Beets in Orange Butter Sauce


For dessert, Minoo made Beets in Orange Butter Sauce.  Minoo roasted the beets the night before as it takes some time to do it.  Roasted beets are sweeter and have a deeper flavour than boiling them.

To roast beets, preheat the oven to 375F.  Rinse beets clean and place in on a piece of aluminium foil.  Drizzle with some vegetable or olive oil.  Fold the foil over the beets and seal the package.  Bake until the beets are tender from 30 to 60 minutes depending on the size and number of the beets.

You’ll probably need a pair of disposable kitchen gloves when handling beets as it will stained your hand reddish or purplish.
