Roasted Beets

As we enter the blistering cold, sometimes a pop of mediterranean flavors and some comforting roasted beets are all that we need to get through this Winter (or sometimes we pop into 2941 Street Food to get our mediterranean fix) .

Given that people are also trying to keep their New Year’s Resolution of eating healthy, we thought this would be a perfect dish to kick off February!
