  • 4 beets (small to medium. If using larger beets use 2 or 3. Trim off the greens,and cut off the tails, then scrub the beets clean under running water.)
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter (use 2 for even more flavor)
  • 4 cloves garlic (thinly sliced)
  • Salt and ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place the beets on a baking sheet and pop them into the oven. Let them cook 40-50 minutes until a knife goes cleanly through the thickest part of the beet.
  • Let the beets cool until you can handle them, then slice them thinly. Cut each slice into half or fourths if using large beets.
  • Place the butter and garlic in a sklllet. Let them heat together over medium-low heat. This will help infuse the garlic flavor through the oil.
  • As the garlic starts to turn color and becomes lightly blonde, add the sliced beets. Add salt and ground black pepper. Move the beets around to coat them in the garlic-butter mixture.
  • Turn off the heat after three to four minutes. Serve the beets hot, warm or at room temperature.
