Preheat oven to 375 F.
Wash the beets, leaving the roots untrimmed. Put them on a large sheet of aluminum foil and seal into a package. Put the package in a baking pan and roast for about 1 3/4 hours until the beets are tender; let cool. Once the beets are cool enough to handle, slip of the skins, then cut into 1/4" slices.
Use 1 tbs of the tangerine juice to mix the cornstarch to a paste. Add the paste, vinegar, agave syrup, chile, adobe sauce, and margarine to a saucepan. Cook gently until the sauce has slightly thickened. Add the beet slices and heat through, gently turning the beets to evenly coat with the glaze. Garnish with the orange zest and the chopped parsley or cilantro.
