Baked Beets with Fennel

This side dish was wonderful if you like beets and fennel.  Both of these vegetables are ones that people either love or hate.  If you love them, this is a flavorful side dish.

Baked Beets with Fennel
Makes 3-4 servings

2 large beets
1 fennel bulb
1/2 orange
2 tablespoons coconut oil or butter
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Peel the beets with a vegetable peeler and chop into 1-inch cubes.  Chop the tops (fronds) off the fennel bulb and slice the bulb into 1/4-inch strips.  Cut the orange into 1/2-inch pieces.

Melt the coconut oil or butter and pour over the beets, fennel and orange pieces and toss to coat all the pieces with the oil.  Spread evenly in a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the beets are fork-tender.

  1. I made this today and it was excellent! This is the first time I've roasted oranges and I couldn't believe how flavorful they were.
