How to Roast Beets
Gently wash beets; prick in several places with fork. Place beets in center of large sheet of foil. Drizzle with 1/4 cup KRAFT Italian Dressing. Fold up sides of foil to enclose beets; seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Bake at 400°F for 45 min. or until beets are tender. Open foil; let beets stand in foil until cooled. To peel, gently rub skins of beets with cloth or paper towel until skins are removed.
Cooked beet greens make a delicious side dish. Blanch the greens for 10 min. in boiling salted water. Drain greens well, then add to a large skillet with a little olive oil; cook and stir on medium heat 15 min. or until greens are tender.
Prepare as directed, using KRAFT Fat Free Italian Dressing.
Best of Season
Beets are available year round, but most varieties are available June to October. Look for smooth, firm round beets with dark unblemished skins, no more than 2 inches in diameter.
Place unwashed leaves and beets in separate resealable plastic bags. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
