How To Make Balsamic-Glazed Roasted Beets

A tart balsamic reduction balances out the earthy sweetness of these roasted beets, a delicious side dish that is so easy to make.

Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking: 40 minutes
Total: 45 minutes



  • 6mediumbeets,(2 bunches, or about 3½ lbs)
  • 1tspkosher salt
  • 2tbspextra virgin olive oil
  • cupbalsamic vinegar
  • 1tbspmaple syrup
  • freshly ground black pepper,to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Remove the leafy stems and roots of the beets and peel each one with a vegetable peeler. Cut the beets in 1½-inch chunks.

  2. Place the cut beets on the prepared baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and salt. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, tossing once with a spatula midway through, until the beets are tender when pierced with a thin-bladed knife.

  3. Meanwhile, combine the vinegar and maple syrup in a small, shallow sauté pan. Cook over medium heat until the liquid is just slightly thickened and lightly coats the back of a metal spoon. It should be reduced by about half (or to about 3 tablespoons). Pay close attention and be sure not to over-reduce it; it goes from sweet and syrupy to burnt and hard very quickly.

  4. Toss the glaze with the roasted beets. Serve hot or cold.
