Roasted beet lentils 60 minutes

I wasn't always a fan of beets i started to like it when I realized they were absolutely delicious oven-roasted. Since i've discovered this i've been making recipes with it almost every week. Including this simple and amazingly delicious beet sauce!

Yes you could say i'm beet crazy. Trust me if you're not a fan this sauce will make you change your mind.

I've had this sauce many times with pasta or just as a simple vinaigrette for lazy weekday green bowls.

To prepare this orgasmic recipe just wash the beets cut them into wedges toss them with a bit of oil and herbs and toss them in the oven for 40 minutes it's that simple! If they're organic you can keep the skin on otherwise peeling them is a better idea.

Beets make any dish beautiful it'll also stain your hands and fingers a bit. Not to worry though it'll also stain your hands and fingers a bit. Not to worry though it doesn't stay ;).

Fresh mint is also key in this recipe! Don't omit it! I wish i had a mint plant growing in my appartment i had one last summer but it died during our two weeks away last september :<. Growing plants indoors has always been a challenge for me they're healthier outside.

If you have a fresh plant LUCKY YOU! Otherwise store-bought herbs will do :) know that if you do buy a bouquet of mint you can keep them fresh longer if you do these simple steps - Tear off any wilted leaves wash the mint gently put the stalks in a glass with a bit of water put a plastic bag over it and stick it in the fridge.

Simple right?
