Jump to Recipe

These Orange-Rosemary Glazed Beets are decadent, flavorful, and wonderful to make ahead. They are delicious hot or cold, great as a side, in a salad or power bowl, or on crackers with Green Cashew-Fu Ricotta (a.k.a vegan cashew tofu ricotta) or Lux Vegan Macadamia Ricotta and Easy Stove Top Maple Pecans. The glaze liquid that remains in the casserole dish makes a fantastic dressing in a citrus beet salad.

It’s not Blood… It’s Beet Juice!

Working with beets can be a little messy. Ask my favorite TV beet farmer.

I recommend wearing dark clothing like Johnny Cash would have worn when peeling and cutting up beets. Alternatively, if you have a shirt for painting, hair-dyeing, or working on cars, that would also be a wise choice. Wearing gloves is an option if you don’t like having temporarily red-stained fingers.

Prepping The Beets & Rosemary

Peel the beets.

Cut off the stem parts that won’t peel away.

Cut the beets in half to make it easier to stabilize the beets when slicing.

Slicing the beets cut-side down helps keep them in place.

Mix in the beets and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, removing from oven and stirring and tossing the beets every 20 – 30 minutes.

The beets are done when they are easily pierced with a fork.

Remove from oven, toss the beets and let sit for a few minutes to cool and let the juice reduce a bit more. Serve or store in the fridge to use with the recipe of your choice.
