Have your side-dishes been boring? The same old story of spinach, kale, asparagus or salad, give this dish a try and “beet” the competition. These lemon marinated roasted-beets will add quite the punch to your next meal, top them off with some goat cheese and BOOM, you have a winner. If it is too hot to cook inside, throw these on a skillet in your grill or just grill the beets right on the grates. I love beets they have such a unique taste and texture. Adding the lemon juice really sets them apart from the rest. Beets are loaded with health benefits and I should definitely eat them more often. I guess that means I will have to start buying boxes of rubber gloves because these make a mess when peeling and will definitely stain clothing and hands.

      These were awesome! I think I needed a bit more lemon juice for the amount of beets I made. Also a friend told me a few weeks ago she doesn’t bother peeling beets anymore, so I tried it this time. I totally agree, I won’t peel them, at least in this form.
