Roasted Beets with Mint-Yogurt Sauce

Dress up succulent roasted beets with a simple mint-yogurt sauce. A hint of ground cumin brings out the vegetable's earthiness.

Roasted Beets with Mint-Yogurt Sauce

Source: Everyday Food, October 2010


  • 1 bunch medium beets or 3 bunches baby beets (about 1 1/2 pounds total), scrubbed
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, toss beets with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Cover dish tightly with foil and roast until tender when pierced with a knife, 45 to 60 minutes, depending on size. When cool enough to handle, rub beets with a paper towel to remove skins.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, mint, cumin, and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper. Spoon yogurt sauce over beets and serve.

    I made these after having a roasted beets dish at one of my favorite restaurants. I couldn't find baby beets so I used large ones and cubed them after roasted for spearing with toothpicks. I also changed the dipping sauce to match the restaurant's presentation -- honey mixed with yogurt and a little orange zest. Oh my, delicious!
