Marinated beets with lemon juice, garlic, and cumin.
Step 1: Ingredients & Roasting
A friend served this beet salad at his Christmas party, then sent us home with the recipe. This is apparently a popular dish among Moroccan Jews. I've included the ingredient list here so you can get the basic ratio, which I of course muddle to my taste in preparation.
1 pound beets
1 lemon, juiced
1 clove garlic, minced/grated
1 teaspoon ground cumin
salt/pepper to taste
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
handful fresh parsley, chopped
Wash your beets, chopping the greens off if they're still attached, and put the still-wet roots in a large roasting pan. Cover it with foil, and drop it into a 375F oven for shortly under an hour.
While the beets are baking you can assemble the marinade, prepare other food items, or put up a new Instructable
