This Roasted Beets With Pistachios And Thyme recipe is all that and gets bonus points for being make ahead (and tasting better the longer they sit).

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/2 pounds baby beets trimmed and scrubbed
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil divided
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme plus more for garnish
  • Kosher salt and Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Aged balsamic or sherry vinegar

Instructions
 

  • 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.
