Lemon Roasted Golden Beets

One of my new favorites!

Lemon Roasted Golden Beets
serves 3 - 4

About 1 1/2 pounds golden beets - around 4 larger ones or 8 - 10 small ones
2T olive oil
1/3 cup fresh herbs, chopped - I used oregano, basil, and thyme
grated zest from 1 unwaxed lemon
Salt and white pepper
Juice from 1/2 lemon

Peel beets and slice into wedges.  In an oven proof pan, mix beets, oil, herbs, lemon zest, salt and pepper.  Roast uncovered in a 425F degree oven for about 1/2 hour, or until beets are tender.  Remove from oven and squeeze lemon juice over them.  Mix and serve.
