These marinated beets are a delicious option for beet lovers!
Let me start off by saying that I have never liked beets. I’ve tried. Honest I have. But somehow, no matter what I do to them, they end up tasting like sweet dirt.
Over the years, I’ve really tried to prepare them in a way I can tolerate them, but nothing, and I do mean nothing has done the trick. Until now.
While I’m not overwhelmed by these, I will say that everyone else who tried them really loved them. So I won’t trust my taste buds alone in my recommendation that you try this recipe. Because the truth is, beets are just one of those things that will have to grow on me.

MARINATED BEETS RECIPE:
- 5 medium beets
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 medium orange (juice only)
- 1 medium lemon (juice only)
- Clip the tops off your beets and scrub them well to remove any dirt on the skins. Place the beets on a large piece of foil and pour the oil over them.
- Fold the foil into a pocket or tent, completely closing up the foil around the beets.
- Once you have it closed, place the entire package on a cookie sheet or in a baking dish. Bake at 350 F. until soft and easily pierced with a fork. (Time will depend on size of beets) Allow them to cool enough that you can handle them without burning yourself.
- Peel the skins off. Chop into small pieces.
- Spread those pieces in a baking dish and pour the citrus juices over them.
- Make sure that the beats are in a single layer so all pieces are laying in the juice to marinate. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight (or at least for 2 hours minimum).
