Getting more veggies into your diet is virtuous. It can also be delicious, with these recipes.
You Will Need
- 1 lb. beets
- Goat cheese
- 1 qt. casserole
- Hot coals and grill
- Aluminum foil
Remove the greens from 1 pound of beets, but leave 2 inches of stem.
Boil the beets in water until they are tender, adding water as necessary. Young beets may require 30 to 40 minutes; mature beets up to 2 hours to cook.
Microwave beets in a 1-quart casserole for 12 minutes as an alternative.
Bake the beets at 325 degrees until they're tender as another alternative. Allow at least 30 minutes for young beets and 1 hour for mature beets.
Wrap sliced beets in aluminum foil with seasoning and butter and roast them over hot coals on a grill.
Cool the beets slightly and remove their skins.
Season to taste, and serve with melted butter and parley. Paprika, horseradish, walnuts, and goat cheese also make tasty additions.
