  • 1 pound beets
  • tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon vinegar Balsamic, white or red wine
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Start by cutting the ends off the beets. Use a peeler or a paring knife to peel the skin.
  • Cut the beet into quarters and then into evenly sized pieces. You can cube them into 1-inch cubes too.
  • In a large mixing bowl, toss the beets with olive oil, and vinegar.
    Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and toss the beets so it gets coated with seasoning evenly.
  • Preheat Air fryer to 400F. Place the beets in the Air fryer basket. Air fry beets at 400F for 15 to 18 minutes shaking the basket halfway through until fork tender and caramelized on the edges.
  • Remove the roasted beets from the Air fryer and serve warm. If you're cooking several batches, after cooking the last batch, warm all the beets in the Air fryer for a few minutes.


  • Beets can stain your fingers easily. Use gloves before prepping the beets.
  • Store leftover roasted beets in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 4 days.
  • Reheat them in the air fryer at 350F for a few minutes until warm.
  • You can definitely freeze these beets, but the frozen and thawed beets are better used in beet soup or beet hummus. To freeze beets, place them in a freezer bag and freeze for 3 months. Thaw them in the fridge or reheat them in the air fryer.
