VEGETARIAN and GLUTEN FREE WEEK POST #3: MY ROASTED BEETS PREPARED FOR ONE OR A COUPLE OF DAYS DURING THE WEEK!
Again, it works to do the prep for your weekly meals to save time. I usually get a bag of beets from my favorite store. Peel them, rinse them, pat dry them and roast them in the oven with my basting oil. Then I use some whole, others I slice and finally, I get some cubed and use in salads. The bonus? They last me a week in the fridge in a vacuum sealed bag and I don’t have to start my oven in hot days several times a week. Winning!
