– beets – olive oil – lemon – lemon – coarse salt and cracked pepper

Slice both ends off the beets. Peel the beets using a paring knife or vegetable peeler. Cut the beets into wedges.

Pour the olive oil into a large non-stick frying pan over high heat and heat until it begins to smoke lightly. Add in the beets and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper. Go heavy on the pepper. Flip the beets around and continue to cook for 2 to 3 minutes.

Place the pan in the oven on the middle rack and roast at 425° for 40 to 45 minutes or until lightly caramelized and tender.

To roast directly in the oven, toss the cut beets in a bowl with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
