1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme

1 tsp. chopped fresh chives

Wrap the beets individually in aluminum foil and roast until tender when pierced with a fork, about 1 hour depending on their size.

When cool, peel and quarter the beets and place in a serving bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix together the thyme, chives and olive oil. Drizzle the olive oil-herb mixture over the beets, season with salt and pepper, and top with the crumbled goat cheese. Serve right away. Serves 4.
