ORANGE AND GARLIC-ROASTED BEETS

1 pound medium beets, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
4 medium garlic cloves, crushed with ½ tsp. of salt
2 Tbsp. fresh orange juice
½ tsp. finely grated orange peel
2 tsp. olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Toss the beets with all of the above ingredients until they are well-coated. Roast the beets for about 40 minutes, shaking the pan and stirring occasionally, until they are tender. Serve warm or at room temperature. Serves 6.
