Perfect Roasted Golden Beets

Perfect Roasted Golden Beets

One of the vegetables I find myself more often cooking especially in winter is beets! I used to love beets since I was little! My mom would usually just steam them or boil them. I still do the same sometimes but honestly that’s a rather messy way to cook them since they tend to stain so easily anything they come in contact with.

I find that roasting beets whole in aluminum foil is the best way to cook them as they cook fast, mess-free and they turn delicious and almost caramelized!

This recipe is very simple! It will take you less than 10 minutes to prep everything and then you throw everything in the over for an hour and you can forget about them until they’re ready. I have made these over and over and eventually I figured the best way to cook them to perfection so I am ready to share it with you!

I made golden beets in this recipe since we prefer their sweeter taste a little more than red beets. However if you prefer red beets you can follow the same method.

You will need only five ingredients for this recipe and them when they’re ready you will be amazing at how soft, tender, sweet and almost caramelized they turn! You can keep them refrigerated and have them on salads and bowls!

Roasted golden beets in aluminum foil that are perfectly juicy, soft and tender!


  • 2 pounds raw golden beets
  • four or five sheets aluminum foil
  • 6, 7 whole garlic cloves
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • few tsp of water to put at the bottom of the foil


  1. Preheat the oven at 450 degrees.
  2. Wash your beets well and cut the top parts. Poke each beet with a fork a few times.
  3. Place each beet in aluminum foil, or if they’re small you can place two beets in each foil. Add a bit of water in the foil (just enough to cover the bottom of the foil when folded) and drizzle with a bit of olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Add a few garlic cloves in each aluminum foil.
  4. Wrap your beets into the aluminum foil. Place in the oven for 50-60 minutes until they are soft when poked with a knife of fork. Remove from the oven when ready, let cool for 10 minutes and serve.

  • You can refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to a week.
