Makes 4 servings

4 medium beets, peeled and cut in small cubes
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon orange zest
1/2 cup fresh unsweetened grapefruit juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger

Preheat the oven 425F (220 C).

Place the beets on a baking sheet. Toss with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the beets have just softened.

For the glacé: Heat a small saucepan over medium high heat and add the ingredients. Bring to a low boil and reduce the sauce by half. Toss the beets with the thickened sauce.
