Beaten by Beets


How to Roast Beets, Shoes & Pie Test Kitchen Style

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°
  2. Remove somewhat-wilted beets from refrigerator
  3. Realize there’s only 2″ left on the roll of aluminum foil
  4. Go to store for fresh roll
  5. Get home, double-check Bittman for timing
  6. Notice that Bittman says to cook the beets at 400°
  7. For an hour
  8. Wonder if brownies count as dinner
  9. Figure you probably don’t have enough cocoa powder to make brownies
  10. Wrap the beets in foil, put on tray in oven, set timer for 1 hour
  11. Decide to instead use the forgotten, pre-cooked beets you re-discovered in the refrigerator earlier, and save tonight’s beets for another time
  12. Look up microwave times for butternut squash
