2 medium sized yellow beets with greens attached
2 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil + more when serving
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Balsamic glaze (optional)
Place rack in middle of oven and preheat oven to 375° F.
Rinse and dry your beets and trim off the leafy tops. Place each beet on a sheet of foil and drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil, then wrap each beet in the aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Roast until tender, for about 1 hour.
Remove from the oven and let cool. When cool enough to handle, using a spoon, gently scrape the skin off and cut them crosswise into thin slices. Place on a platter, season with salt and pepper, drizzle some more extra virgin olive oil and the balsamic glaze. Serve with fresh greens.
