Roasted Beets w/ Horseradish Creme


4 red or orange beets, skin on
olive oil
2 tablespoons horseradish
1/2 cup creme fraiche
1/2 lemon squeezed
purple radish sprouts (optional)


Preheat oven at 400F.
Drizzle the beets with olive oil and a splash of water. Place in a small ovenproof dish, cover with foil and roast in the preheated oven until just soft. 1 to 1 ½ hour, insert a knife and it should have no resistance going thru. Allow to cool and remove the outer skin.
In a small bowl mix together the horseradish and crème fraiche, salt and pinch of salt. Mix well and tasting as you go along until the sauce it is the way you like it.
Cut the beets, place on a dish. Sprinkle a small amount of olive oil over it and serve the horseradish sauce alongside. Add a couple of pinched of the purple radish sprouts


Beets have always been one of my favorite vegetables. The oven does most of the work, you clean them, peel, cut them and serve.

The beets can be prepared in the oven the day before and can preserve in the refrigerator for a couple of days.  Add the horseradish as you go along and taste to your liking. I like horseradish and have tendency to add more than I should.
