1 pound medium beets—peeled, halved, and sliced 1/4 inch thick
4 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon sugar
Salt and freshly ground pepper
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 375°. In an 8-inch square nonreactive baking dish, toss the beets with the garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, oil, and sugar. Season with salt and pepper and spread the beets in a single layer. Spray an 8-inch piece of parchment paper lightly with olive oil cooking spray and set it oiled-side down on the beets. Cover tightly with foil and roast, shaking the pan occasionally, for about 40 minutes, until the beets are tender. Serve the beets warm or hot.
