  • 6 medium beets with greens attached

  • 2 medium red onions, quartered

  • 2 tablespoons herbes de Provence

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 2 cups fresh spinach


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  2. Trim and wash beets. Set leaves aside and discard stems. Wrap beets in foil packages (3 per package) and place in a deep baking dish.

  3. Roast in the preheated oven until tender, about 45 minutes.

  4. Remove from the oven. Divide onions, herbes de Provence, 1/2 of the olive oil, salt, and pepper between the packages. Reseal and roast for another 45 minutes.

  5. Remove from the oven. Drizzle 1/2 of the balsamic vinegar into each package. Reseal and roast for 5 more minutes.

  6. Meanwhile, melt butter and remaining olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Throw in spinach and reserved beet leaves. Cook, stirring often, until wilted, about 5 minutes.

  7. Remove beets from the oven. Transfer beets, onions, and all drippings to a serving dish. Stir in wilted greens and season to taste.
