How To Roast Beets in Convection

Beets can be steamed or steam roasted in a Steam Oven or baked in Convection. Either way, they will have great flavor and texture.

Steamed beets make a wonderful addition to green or grain salads and are very easy to prepare in the Steam Oven using the Steam Mode. When choosing beets for steaming try to use beets of a uniform size, begin by gently washing the beets to remove any dirt then place them in the perforated pan nested over the solid pan. This is really important to avoid the red beet juice staining the oven.

Beets can also be peeled, cut into the desired shape, combined with olive oil salt and pepper and roasted in the Combination Convection Steam mode or in the Convection Roast mode (Convection oven). Beets make a flavorful addition to salads as well as sandwiches and are delicious with hamburgers.

Steam-oven yellow and red beets.


2 - medium golden beets

2 - medium red beets

Other ingredients:

1 - head butter lettuce, rinsed and dried

1 - tablespoon snipped chives

¼ - cup olive oil

4 - tablespoons golden Balsamic vinegar

1 - teaspoon Dijon mustard


Steam Method

Preheat the oven in the Steam Mode.

Remove the beet tops and rinse the beets clean to remove any dirt.

Place the beets in the perforated pan nested over the solid pan and steam for 30 - 40 minutes until very tender.

While the beets are steaming, set up your work space so you can easily peel the red beets without staining everything around you.  A low sided metal baking pan is ideal, or a cutting board covered in plastic wrap. 

To avoid staining your hands wearing disposable gloves is a good idea when handling the red beets. Once the beets are peeled and sliced they are ready to be combined with the salad.

Combine the ingredients for the dressing, toss the lettuce leaves with just enough dressing to coat, carefully fold in the golden beets and add a little more dressing if needed.  

Sprinkle the chives over the salad and add the sliced red beets.

Peel the beets, cut into the desired shape and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Spread onto a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 35 - 40 minutes until tender.
