Beet Fries

I picked up a wonderful beet at the Farmer’s Market over the weekend. Because it was long instead of round, I thought it would be fun to make beet fries with it.


1-2 large beets
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 sprig fresh thyme
Sea salt


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Peel the beet(s) and discard the ends. Cut the beet(s) in half lengthwise, and then julienne each half into 1/4-inch strips. Coat the beet fries with remaining ingredients and arrange on a baking sheet.

Roast in the oven for 40 minutes, turning every 10 minutes. The beet fries will turn out slightly caramelized and oh so yummy!
