Roasted Beets with Goat Cheese and Herbs

 

6 beets, about 1 1/2 lb. total weight, greens removed*

1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme

1 tsp. chopped fresh chives

2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper

2 oz. fresh goat cheese, crumbled

 

Directions

 

Preheat the oven to 400° F.

 

Wrap the beets individually in aluminum foil and roast until tender when pierced with a fork, about 1 hour depending on their size.

 

When cool, peel and quarter the beets and place in a serving bowl.

 

In a separate bowl, mix together the thyme, chives and olive oil. Drizzle the olive oil-herb mixture over the beets, season with salt and pepper, and top with the crumbled goat cheese. Serve right away. Serves 4.
