  • *To roast the beets, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Remove the tops from the beets and wrap in foil. Roast for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the beets are tender. Let cool for 15 minutes, then remove from the foil and rub with a towel to remove the peels. Cool and chop, or store in an airtight container for up to 1 week until ready to use.
  • *Toast walnuts in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet in a 350 degree F oven for 8-10 minutes or until fragrant.
