This summer I've been using a toaster oven whenever I need to bake something rather than heating up the oven in the stove which puts a lot of heat in the house. I got some fresh baby beets at the farmer's market and decided to roast or bake them.
I cut the beets into bite sized pieces and put them in a bowl. I don't peel them; baby beets have think skins and I just wash them off. Careful with the beets they will stain anything they come into contact with, even your counter tops.
With a scissors I clipped a bunch of fresh herbs from my garden; some thyme, basil, marjoram and basil. I added a tablespoon of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, added salt and pepper and tossed them gently. I put them in a baking dish and baked them at 350 F for about an hour. Gary even liked them, although he still insists he doesn't like beets. Ha. Oh almost forgot, we had the beets along with some peach salsa. Strange combo but good none the less. Salsa made with peaches, cilantro, and poblano peppers.
Had another good day at the farmer's market yesterday. Several folks came by who've visited before and one woman said, "Oh you have some new items". How cool is that, repeat customers. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
