Beets are hearty, delicious and so good for you. Red beets tend to stain everything in their path, so if you're using a combination of red and gold, keep the two colours slightly separated when roasting.

Ingredients

  • 18 kg red beets peeled and cut in 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick wedges
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pkg pearl onion peeled
Pistachio Vinaigrette:
  • 1 shallots minced
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup unsalted shelled pistachio finely chopped

Method

Toss together beets, oil, pepper and salt; spread on parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet. Roast on bottom rack in 375 F (190 C) oven, stirring once, for 30 minutes. Add pearl onions to pan; roast, stirring once halfway through, until onions are golden and tender, about 1 hour.

Pistachio Vinaigrette: Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk together shallot, lemon juice, mustard, sugar, pepper and salt; whisk in oil until combined. Whisk in parsley and pistachios.

Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days.

Toss vinaigrette with beet mixture. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Peeling pearl onions can be tedious, but we use a method that makes it much easier. In a saucepan of boiling water, blanch the onions for 1 minute. Drain, then rinse under cold water. The skins should slip off easily.
