For beets

  • 3 lbs beets any variety and color
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

For the horseradish cream

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2-3 Tbsp prepared horseradish
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

For serving

  • 1/2 cup arugula microgreens or other greens / fresh herbs, such as dill, tarragon, or chervil
  • 1/4 cup walnuts roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp flaky sea salt

To roast beets

  • Pre-heat oven to 400 F. Cut beets into small wedges about 1" thick (either halved or quartered), then place in a large roasting dish. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper, then cover with foil and roast for 1 hour. Beets are fully cooked when a knife cuts them with no resistance. If not done, cook for an additional 15-20 minutes.
