3 or 4 large beets, washed w/ greens removed (I like to buy the loose beets, much easier!)

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Wrap the beets in aluminum foil so they are sealed and place on a baking sheet
Put them in the oven for about 40-45 mins. I would start testing them at about 30 mins since this will vary based on the size of the beets. 
You will be able to tell they are done when they are softer to the touch, similar to a baked potato.
Once they are cooked, take them out of the oven and let them sit for about 10 mins. 
After 10 mins, unwrap the foil to let them cool.

Once they are cool to the touch, you will be able to easily peel them with your hands. 
After they are peeled, I chop mine up so they are easy to put on salads but you could also slice them if you want to eat them as a side dish.

Personally, I love the flavor of beets which is why I eat them and they are a great go-to when I am bored of the usual veggies. They also have tons of health benefits like lowering blood pressure, boosting stamina, fighting inflammation, supporting the body's natural detoxification process and containing high levels of valuable nutrients and fiber. Getcha BEETS!
