Glorious Golden Beets

Simple and beautiful, an excellent side dish or salad topper! 
All you need:

2 large gold beets, peeled and chopped

Coconut oil spray for pan and tops of beets

1tsp fresh minced Rosemary

Salt, pepper to taste 

Sprinkles of Nutmeg

Sprinkles of Ginger powder

Preheat oven to 350. Wash, peel and chop your beets into 1/2 in cubes. Spray your own with coconut or olive oil spray and place beets singe layer in your dish. Then spray again. Sprinkle all seasonings on top of beets and put in the oven for 1 hour, checking in 15 min increments for overcooking. My beets were particularly tough to begin with so used the full hour, but yours could potentially be done as soon as 30minutes in, so keep an eye out! That is it! Enjoy!
