    I too made with Heirloom beets, this was wonderful. Served over a bed of sauted beet greens and sweet onion, nothing went to waste. First time boyfriend ever had fresh beets, and he said I can make it again anytime I desire! - 10/22/08

    This recipe was awesome. I used kosher salt instead of sea salt and used heirloom beets of different colors and varieties. I want to go make more right now! Thanks for the recipe! - 7/19/08

    These were good, but took much longer than an hour (actually about an hour and a half). My first time roasting beets - will have to try them again. I must have done something wrong because not much of the flavor went through the beets - only on the skin, which was removed after cooking. - 10/14/08

  • Great recipe, I love these on salad. I left out the garlic because it can burn and taste bitter. - 9/25/08

    Roasting Garlic with olive oil prevents it from burning. It's flavor is sweet and quite complementary to the beets!
