Earthy Roasted Beets with Tahini and Capers
Let the beets drop! We love earthy sweet beets. Beets are an excellent source of iron and fiber. Sesames are an ideal source of plant-protein, healthy fat and calcium! Together they make a colorful side dish that will leave you energized and satisfied.
4 medium beet roots
4 tbsp capers
1 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp Fun Sesames Tahini
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Rinse beets and then wrap each beet completely up into foil. Place on a baking sheet and bake for anywhere from 45-90 minutes, depending on size of the beet. Remove from oven when thoroughly cooked. Beets are ready when you can easily pierce with a fork. Allow beets to cool and carefully transfer to a cutting board. Slice the root end and top of the beet. Using a kitchen towel, or paper towel, rub the skin from the beet. It should easily come off. Discard. Slice each beet into ¼ inch medallions. Then toss in a bowl with 1 tbsp of olive oil, capers, salt and pepper.
Plate and drizzle with tahini or leave out in a separately bowl and allow guests to drizzle over their dish, individually.
