Baking Vegetables in a Dutch oven is a simple way to cook them outdoors. This recipe uses a herb oil that can take things up a notch on the flavor scale.
You may be surprised how much you like grilled beets, even if you’ve never had a beet before. Not only do they add great color and flavor to the grill, they are super nutritious.
Beets are a root vegetable, like potatoes, and are grilled using a similar technique. They have a lot of natural sugar, which caramelizes beautifully on the grill.
Try serving these hot off the grill sprinkled with crumbled goat cheese and chopped fresh herbs, or with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
4 medium beets
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Peel the beets. Use food handling gloves if you don’t want to stain your fingers red.
Cut the beets into 1/2-inch-thick slices and place in a large bowl. Add the olive oil, pepper, and salt and toss well.
Preheat a grill to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
Grill the beets for 25 to 30 minutes, turning them every 8 to 10 minutes. The beets are finished when you can easily pierce them with a fork.
