4
medium beets (about 1 lb), peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces
1
small orange, halved, thinly sliced
2
tablespoons olive oil
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3
tablespoons butter
1
tablespoon chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
1
tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
2
tablespoons orange juice
  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Cut 18x12-inch sheet of heavy-duty foil; spray foil with cooking spray. In large bowl, toss beets, orange slices, oil, salt and pepper. Spoon mixture in center of foil. Bring up 2 sides of foil over mixture so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Place packet on cookie sheet.
  2. Roast 45 minutes. Carefully unfold foil with tongs; roast 10 minutes longer or until beets are tender and browned.
  3. In 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Stir in parsley, rosemary and orange juice with whisk; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove beets and oranges from foil and add to skillet; cook and stir until coated with butter mixture.
