Balsamic-Dressed Roasted Beets

    We had these for dinner last night - they were delicious and easy. Since we were having baked drumsticks, roasting the beets added no time to the meal prep. We made 3 changes to the recipe: 1. Before roasting, we peeled the beets, cut them into wedges, and coated them with 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil. They took a little less than an hour (40-50 minutes). 2. We ate the beets hot rather than at room temperature. 3. We don't like anise, so replaced it with 1 teaspoon of ginger. We used ginger from a tube, but fresh ginger would probably be even better. We added the ginger to the reduction about a minute or two before pouring it over the beets. The ginger added a really nice flavor.

    This was wonderful! Thank you so much for a great recipe! It was SO easy to peel the beets after they were roasted! I did not have gloves, so I rolled them in a plastic bag!

    I will definately make again!! I I did not have star anise, so I use a dash of fennel seed and also a sprinkle of grated orange peel. Since joining Weight Watchers, I try to add a "new" vegetable each week. This is a keeper!
