Drizzling Beet With Oil for Roasting

Drizzle the beets with a bit of oil before roasting. I like to use olive oil, but grapeseed oil or canola oil work just fine, too. Sprinkle the beets with salt, too, if you like.

Note: If you're planning on making a salad with the roasted beets, feel free to use plenty of oil here—you can use the beet-infused oil in the dressing.
