Ingredients

  • 2 pounds fresh beets, trimmed and peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided

Nutritional Facts

2/3 cup equals 171 calories, 5 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 0 cholesterol, 417 mg sodium, 32 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. Cut each beet into six wedges; place in a large bowl. Add oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt; toss to coat.
  2. Place a piece of heavy-duty foil (about 24 in. long) in a 15-in. x 10-in. baking pan. Arrange beets on foil; fold foil around beets and seal tightly. Bake at 400° for 35-40 minutes or until beets are tender. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine the pomegranate juice, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon stick, orange peel, pepper and remaining salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until mixture is syrupy and reduced to 1/3 cup. Carefully remove beets from foil; add to syrup and toss gently to coat. Yield: 6 servings.
