Tender and Delicious Baked Beets
1 lb beets, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 purple onion, sliced 1/4 thick
1 whole garlic clove
1 T. butter, cut into small pieces
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 425.
Place vegetables and butter in a baking dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with a lid. If you don't have a dish with a lid, you can cover the pan with tinfoil.
Bake for about 45 minutes until the beets are semi-tender.
Remove the lid/cover and stir. Return to the oven uncovered and bake for about 15 minutes longer to evaporate the juices.
