Roasted Beets and Burrata Recipe

The creamy burrata cheese pairs perfectly with the savory roasted beets. It's topped with olive oil and thyme for the final pop of flavor just before serving. Yum!

  • 2-3 Raw Beets with stems on
  • 8 ounces Burrata Cheese
  • 2 tbsp High-Quality Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tbsp English Thyme
  • 1/2 tbsp Lemon Thyme


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  2. Trim root off beets. Trim stems of beets leaving two inches.

  3. Individually wrap beets in tinfoil. Place on a baking sheet and into the oven for 50-60 minutes. 

  4. Remove from oven and with gloves unwrap beets. While cooling, peel back the thin outer layer on beets. It should come off fairly easily. 

  5. Slice into thin rounds and align on a serving dish.

  6. Place burrata cheese on the plate with beets.

  7. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle thyme over the top. 

  8. Top with salt and pepper if desired and serve. 

  9. Cover and keep in the fridge if planning to serve later.
