Pistachio Thyme Marinated Roasted Beets Recipe

It’s easy to go overboard during the holidays. To make too much food, with too many flavors, and then it all gets to be just too much. That’s why we always try to work in a side dish that’s just so simple and straightforward it can mix and match with pretty much anything.

This Pistachio Thyme Marinated Roasted Beets Recipe is all that and gets bonus points for being make ahead (and tasting better the longer they sit).

Now, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/2 pounds baby beets trimmed and scrubbed
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil divided
  • 2 tablespoons Aged balsamic or sherry vinegar
  • 2 small shallots halved and thinly sliced
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme plus more for garnish
  • Kosher salt and Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pistachios for serving
  • Crumbled feta cheese of shavings of Ricotta Salata, optional

Instructions
 

  • Roast The Beets: Heat oven to 400°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Combine beets, thyme, 2 tablespoons of the oil, and salt and pepper in a baking dish and toss to coat. Roast until beets are knife tender, about 45 minutes. Set aside until cool enough to handle then rub off skins with paper towels and cut beets into sixths.
  • Make The Marinated Roasted Beets: Mix beets with shallots, vinegar, and olive oil, and the leaves of 1 thyme spring. Season with salt and pepper and let sit at least 1 hour. Toss with pistachios and feta, if using, just before serving.
