Makes 4 servings

2 medium beets of your choice

1 tablespoon olive oil

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. For easy cleanup, line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place beets in a large bowl and, using your hands, toss with oil and seasonings until coated.

Arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until crisp. Remove from oven and eat.
