I "wanna" love them :-) But I have learned to like, even love, some veggies just by eating them for a while even if I don't quite like them.

I roasted them a really long time and they were still a little too firm. I may just try tossing them with some balsamic and roasting a little more.
When I make them with the onions, I slice the beets and onions really thinly and add the balsalmic/drizzle of olive oil before roasting. When I add the beets to a big pan of roasted vegetables, I cut them into very small cubes (I cut up all the "takes longer to cook" veggies into smaller pieces (sweet potatoes, carrots, beets) so everything takes about the same amount of time to cook).
