Roasted Beets & Red Onions

roasted beets and red onions

Obligatory kitten news: we still have two girls, they seem fairly strong and they eat well when we feed them. So, I’m pretty hopeful, but as they’re still so incredibly tiny, there’s no knowing for sure if they’ll pull through yet.

Now, for some food. This is a simple side dish that’s incredible with some smokey grilled meat. Serve it with a cheese of some sort – goat’s cheese or feta crumbled on top, or mashed with yogurt for a simple sauce, or this parmesan sauce. It’ll be really lovely.

Roasted Beets & Red Onions
Serves 4 as a side dish

8 beets
4 red onions
3-4 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon – the juice and the zest
salt, pepper

Boil the beets without peeling them, for 20-25 minutes. They should still retain some bite, and not be mushy-soft. Peel and cut into wedges. Peel the onion and cut that into wedges as well. Place in an oven proof dish, drizzle generously with olive oil and lemon juice, and stir in the lemon zest, salt and pepper. Bake at 200°C for about 30 minutes.
