Roasted Beet Wedges

This beet recipe makes ordinary beets taste tender and delicious with just a few sweet and good-for-you ingredients.--Wendy Stenman
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1 pound medium fresh beets, peeled
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 to 5 fresh rosemary sprigs


  • Preheat oven to 400°. Cut each beet into 6 wedges; place in a shallow dish. Add olive oil and salt; toss gently to coat.
  • Place a piece of heavy-duty foil about 12 in. long in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Arrange beets on foil; top with rosemary. Fold foil around beets and seal tightly.
  • Bake until tender, about 1 hour. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Discard rosemary sprigs.
TEST KITCHEN TIP For a milder herb flavor, try using fresh thyme instead of rosemary. You may make the beets a day ahead, then slice and serve cold in a salad.

    I don’t like beets, so I couldn’t taste them, sorry! However, my Mom loves them and I made these for her, so the review is from her. “Those beets are delicious, I loved them. Can you make me more.”

    My husband loves beets. I think they're okay. But this recipe changed my mind. I love these. They're absolutely delicious. This recipe is a keeper.

    This red beet recipe was so flavorful as well as very easy to prepare. I will be using this recipe as one of my red beet regulars.

    Delicious as is as a side dish. The rosemary really comes through. I made a double batch and pickled them with a touch of sugar, apple cider vinegar, water, salt & pepper.

    This recipe was wonderful! I doubled the recipe with the intent to freeze some; however, we enjoyed them so much that none of the beets ever made it to the freezer!

    Very easy and delicious, I just wouldn't recommend using stripy beets, use normal beets, while the stripy beets tasted great, they looked not so great, but they were all the store had.
