Spicy Roasted Golden Beets

Sonnet's recipe in the September issue of Vegetarian Times

In the September issue of Vegetarian Times they announced the winners of the 2012 Reader Recipe Contest.  One of the recipes that received an honorable mention really stood out to us because it of course included coconut oil!  The recipe was for spicy roasted golden beets and it was submitted by Sonnet Lauberth, author of For the Love of Food Blog. Below is the recipe courtesy of Sonnet:

“Beets are one of my favorite root vegetables, and I’m lucky to live in the Pacific Northwest, where they are available locally for most of the year,” says Sonnet Lauberth, a holistic health coach, food educator, and blogger (fortheloveoffoodblog.com). “I wanted to create a dish with roasted beets that had a little more pizzazz. I love serving this dish to friends and family – there are usually quite a few beet haters in the mix and it is always fun to see them change their minds about beets after trying these.”

Spicy Roasted Golden Beets

2 bunches golden beets, tops removed, beets peeled and quarterd (1 3/4 lb)

2 Tbs. coconut oil

1 tsp Simply Organic ground cumin

1/2 tsp Simply Organic paprika
