“I love beets, so I always try new recipes for them when I find one. Instead of just maple syrup, this version adds a little tang from balsamic vinegar that I like because it cuts the sweetness just a little. If you don't like vinegar, however, you can just leave it out.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 bunches medium beets, trimmed and cut into wedges (I sometimes use canned whole beets when I'm in a hurry)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 cup water
  • 12 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 14 cup chopped scallion


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. In ovenproof skillet, toss beets with olive oil. Bake 30 minutes, then cover with aluminum foil and bake 1 hour more.
  2. (For canned beets, cook on stove until thoroughly heated through, then drain and continue with recipe.).
  3. Remove foil; stir in 1/2 cup water, maple syrup and vinegar. Place skillet on stovetop. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook 5-8 minutes, or until mixture is reduced to a syrupy consistency. Transfer to serving dish and and sprinkle with scallions.
