I swear you won’t even know you’re eating beets – it’s that flavorful!


Beets are one of the grounding foods I was talking about that are great to eat in the winter and are rich in antioxidants which promote detoxification, energy production and our immune system health.

Try them with dukkah – a middle eastern condiment that works amazing on sweet, roasted beets but would also be good with bread or on salad.

Guys, it’s soo good! Brett even licked the plate clean and he claims not to like beets!

Roasted Golden Beets with Pistachio Dukkah

Full Recipe

  • SERVES: 4-5
  • TOTAL TIME: 1hr
  • 3 medium sized golden beets

  • 4 tbs olive oil, divided

  • Dukkah:

  • 1/4 cup pistachios

  • 1 tbs cumin seeds

  • 1 tbs coriander seeds

  • 2 tbs sesame seeds

  • 1 tbs fennel seeds

  • For Topping:

  • 1/4 cup feta cheese

  • 2 tbs lemon juice

  • fresh mint

  • salt & pepper to taste

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Thoroughly wash the beets and cut them in pieces if some of the beets are much larger than the others. You just want them to cook through together at the same time.

  • To roast the beets, you can either wrap them in tin foil or you can add them to an oven safe container that has a lid. I used the container method so I drizzled over 1 tbs of olive oil then covered with a lid and baked for about 45-1 hr or until the beets are soft enough to easily poke through with a fork.

  • Meanwhile, make the dukkah. Add the nuts, spices and seeds to a food processor to break everything down into an even mix.

  • When the beets are ready, remove from oven and let them cool completely so they’re easy to handle. When they’re cool, carefully peel back the skin on the beets. It should peel off easy but if you are having trouble, just use a peeler! (or maybe your beets are already peeled?!)

  • Slice the beets into 1/4 inch thick slices, or cubes or however you find it would be easier to eat!

  • To assemble, drizzle over the lemon juice and olive oil over the beets then sprinkle over the dukkah, as much as you like to preference. If you are saving the leftovers, keep the dukkah in a separate container. Garnish with the feta cheese and fresh mint then enjoy!

    Can be served as a salad or individual servings.
