Roasted Beets

Beets are usually considered a winter vegetable, but many varieties are available in summer, too. Chef Aquilar coaxes out their natural sweetness through roasting, then tosses the warm beets with a honeyed vinaigrette. The item is a popular one at Wynwood Kitchen & Bar, where global Latino cuisine meets edgy street art.

Ingredients

4 lb. red beets
Olive oil, to taste
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 1/2 oz. rosemary leaves
3 oz. garlic
