Peel beets. Cut off tops and bottoms so that the top and bottom of the beets are flat. Quarter beet into 1/2 inch pieces. See pictures for reference.
Bring pot of water and a pinch of salt to boil. Once water is boiling, add beets and turn burner to medium. Simmer beats for 10+ minutes until you can easily pierce them with a knife. Be cautious not to over cook. Once they have cooked, strain and run cold water over beets for about five minutes until cool.
Once beets have cooled down, dry well with a clean dish towel, and then toss with 1 TBSP mild tasting EVOO, salt and pepper to taste.
Before serving, garnish with freshly chopped basil and crumbled goat cheese.
