Roast at 450 degrees F for 45-60 minutes, until they are tender when pierced with a knife.

To serve top with several tablespoons of tzatziki sauce.

I could just have the beets with tzaziki sauce! But I love what you did with the lamb as well. Sometimes I just buy a couple chops and make them simply for myself. My husband won’t eat lamb ☹️
