Roasted Beets Recipe – 0 Points +

Roasted Beets

I adore roasted vegetables…they give such a different and robust flavor to the veggie and, in my opinion, make vegetables really easy to eat. But one vegetable that I surprisingly haven’t tried to roast yet was beets. With a fresh bundle of beets on hand, I decided that now was the time. In just a few quick and easy steps, my beets were roasting away in the oven, and I was anxiously awaiting that first bite. They turned out even better than I expected! The salt, thyme and orange juice seasoning were perfect. They were sweet and tender, but with a kick. Absolutely delicious. And of course, they are 0 Points + per serving which makes them all the more tastier. My husband liked these a lot too, and they will definitely become a go to vegetable side dish in our household. Enjoy!

    Hi,

    I put your recipe into the recipe builder in the weight watchers site and found that they calculate it with 3 points per serving. I put in a recipe with all vegetables (all supposedly 0 points) and it came up with a 7 point per serving “price”. I don’t understand, but if it really is that expensive, then that might be why I’m not losing weight. ??

    Any wisdom on this?

  2. I love love love roasted beets! Even my fiance will eat them (with a little horseradish). I’ve never tried seasoning them with orange and thyme.

    I’m such a fan of beets! Can I share something that I think is a shortcut? Instead of peeling the beets, I roast them first. Then I let them cool a bit. Using a paper towel, I pull the skin off. The skin usually slides right off after they’re cooked.
