    Nothing beets alone, but I have roasted beets high heat with new potatoes, globe carrots, baby turnips to go with standing rib roast (man food). You use a roasting pan, preheat oven to 500 (yep), coat veggies with olive oil salt and pepper. If you roasted meat first use that pan as they pick up the drippings. Roast veggies for 15 minutes and then move them around, at this point you can add mushrooms. The roast another 15 minutes.
    I got the idea from this book. You should have a clean oven or it may smoke up the kitchen.

    Peel and slice them. Arrange the slices in a cassarole dish, drizzle olive oil generously and add kosher salt. Cover loosely with foil and bake for about an hour or until fork tender. When out of the oven, melt a little butter over the whole. Eat!

    I'm actually making a beet and green bean salad today.

    1# Green Beans

    3 Ea. Small Red Beets or striped yellow.

    3 TBSP Red Onion Small Dice

    4 Scallions each. Not bunches.

    To Taste Smoked Sea Salt

    To Taste Black Pepper

    .25 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    2 Lemons. Juiced and zested.

    Blanch the beans. Shock in ice cold water. Reserve for later.

    Toss the beets with the skin on in some olive oil and black pepper.
    Leaving the skin on during cooking will alow the beets to retain their color.

    Roast the beets in the oven until their done.

    Once the beets are done let them cool off and remove the skin. Slice into small quarters.

    Slice Scallions finely.

    Take beans, roasted beets, small dice onion, scallions, and place in a mixing bowl. Add extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and zest, add smoked salt to taste, along with black pepper.

    Serve Room temp!
