Balsamic Barbecued Beets


Balsamic Barbecued Beets

Marinate beets in a simple herbed balsamic vinaigrette before sticking them on the grill for a delicious and healthy barbecued side dish. These easy balsamic barbecued beets are vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. Eat your barbecued beets as is, or add them to a green salad or even a pasta salad.

  • 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp savory
  • 1/4 tsp basil
  • 1/4 tsp sage
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp marjoram
  • 4 large beets, sliced into 1/2 inch thick circles


In a wide flat dish, whisk together all the ingredients except the beets and 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar until well combined.

Place the beets in the dish, coating well with the vinegar and allow to marinate for at least one hour.

Wrap beets in foil, drizzling with extra marinade and folding the foil to seal well. Grill for 20 to 25 minutes, or until beets are soft.

Remove beets from foil and place directly on the grill for another minute or two.

Drizzle with additional balsamic vinegar just before serving.
