- Place beets on foil, coat in 1 tablespoon of oil, season with 1 tablespoon salt, close foil around beets and place into a 400-degree oven until beets are almost tender when pierced with a toothpick, approximately 1½ hours. Remove them from oven and allow them to steam in foil for approximately 30 minutes. Remove skins and slice beets into desired shapes.
- Make pesto by adding ½ cup oil, basil, garlic, ginger, macadamia nuts and remaining salt into a blender. Puree for about 10 seconds until ingredients are roughly smooth.
- Heat a sauté pan over medium heat; add pesto and beets and cook until warmed, approximately 1 minute. Season with ground pepper and arrange on individual plates or serve in a bowl. Sprinkle feta cheese and raisins over top and serve.
