Roasted Beets with Oranges, Ricotta & Honey

Prep: 15 minutes plus standing
Roast: 1 hour • Serves: 4

4 medium fresh beets, ends trimmed
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 medium oranges
1 cup Galbani® whole milk ricotta cheese
1/4 cup honey
Chopped fresh rosemary for garnish (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 375°. Rub beets with oil; wrap individually in aluminum foil and place on rimmed baking pan. Roast beets 1 hour or until tender and easily pierced with knife. Carefully open aluminum foil to allow steam to escape; let stand 20 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Peel and dice beets.

2. Slice off ends of oranges; place each cut side down on cutting board. With a paring knife, slice down sides of oranges to remove skin and white pith. Hold oranges over large bowl; gently cut along sides of membranes to release each segment. Add beets; toss. Makes about 4 cups.

3. Serve beet mixture topped with cheese, drizzled with honey and garnished with rosemary, if desired.

Dietitian’s Dish Tip(s):
> Beets and oranges are both heart-smart ingredients. The fiber and potassium in oranges can contribute to a healthier heart by helping regulate blood pressure and cholesterol levels, while the nitrates in beets can help lower blood pressure and improve overall cardiovascular health.
