Oven Roasted Beets are ready to-use for so many dishes, that you’ll probably won’t want to cook them any another way. And it’s probably the BEST way to cook beets since the natural juices retain during cooking. 

I SO prefer this method of cooking beets! Store in the fridge for up-to two weeks or even freeze! Someone on Instagram mentioned how she makes a huge portion of roasted beets (peel, cut, chop or grate them) then freezes them in zip-loc bags. “A side dish, salad, or borscht ready in no time”.  And I totally agree!

Although I haven’t froze roasted beets themselves yet, I have found the convenience of making batches and storing in the fridge for future use. A must try method of making beets if you like to meal prep, make a pot of borsht (a shortcut-kinda way), or have a tender beet around to grate a freshly made beet salad! The possibilities…

    Hi! Is there a certain way to thaw them from freezer?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Julia, if your making beet soup you can pop them frozen into the kettle and it will heat up just fine. If you want to use it for other recipes, thaw the frozen beets in a bowl to not make a mess from any excess juices.
