Ingredients (2-4 people):
3-4 Large beets
1 cup water
2-3 tablespoons sugar
Wash the beets and wrap them in foil. Heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (on bake) and place the beets (wrapped in foil) onto a baking sheet and in the oven. Let them cook for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.
If you prefer to have your Beets without any added sweetness once you take them out of the oven you can peel the skin off, chop them up, and serve.
However, if you prefer to have the Beets sweetened take them out of the oven, peel off the skin, chip them up, and place them in a pan. Mix together 1 cup of water with the 2-3 tablespoons of sugar. Pour the mixture over the Beets and cover the pan with a lid. Let them cook for approximately 10 minutes on med-low heat. You don’t want the water to dry up, so don’t let them cook too long. Take them out of the pan and serve.
By adding the sugar/water mixture and cooking the Laboo a bit longer they become soft and sweeter.
