Description

These insanely delicious Balsamic Blueberry Glazed Beets are a must for your holiday table. Or heck, all winter long. The beets are roasted then coated in a sticky glaze made with frozen blueberries and balsamic vinegar.


Scale

Ingredients

The Beets:

  • 3 lbs. beets, peeled and quartered (or cut smaller if the beets are large)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • A generous pinch of salt and pepper
  • To serve: arugula, pistachios, blueberries

The Blueberry Balsamic Glaze

  • 2 cups frozen BC Blueberries
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons thyme
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 420 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the beets on the baking sheet, drizzle with the oil, and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Roast in the oven until tender, about 45 mins, turning halfway.
  3. While the beets are roasting, make the blueberry glaze. Place the blueberries, balsamic, thyme, salt and pepper in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Bring to pan to a boil and continue to boil rapidly until the blueberries break down and the glaze thickens, about 5 minutes.
  4. When the beets are cooked, add them to the pan with the glaze. If the glaze begins to look dry, add a splash of water. Stir the beets to coat them in the glaze.
  5. Serve the blueberry balsamic glazed beets on some arugula and sprinkle with some pistachios and a handful of blueberries. (If they are frozen, they will thaw very quickly from the heat of the warm beets.)
