Barda's Rose Petal Beets Recipe

The Beets

  • 3-4 medium-sized beets
  • Tamari soy sauce
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, black pepper, ground coriander, lemon juice and zest to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Peel the beets.
  3. Wrap them in tin foil and roast them for 30 to 35 minutes.
  4. Let the beets cool.
  5. Slice the beets very thin using a mandolin.
  6. Season to taste with black pepper, coriander, lemon zest, lemon juice and olive oil.
  7. Arrange the sliced and seasoned beets on a tray and slightly char them in a very hot oven—just 2-3 minutes under an overhead broiler.
  8. Again, let them cool and then arrange the thin slices on a plate in the shape of a rose. Spray them with a spritz made from equal parts tamari soy sauce and balsamic vinegar.
