I was chatting with my husband the other day and he was telling me about a natural beet juice he had at a local restaurant. Yes, he was excited about beet juice! I decided I needed to create a list of some of the best beet recipes on the Internet to offer him over the coming months. Beets are incredibly healthy and since root vegetables are relatively inexpensive, they are a great way to boost nutrition without going broke.
One of the best beet recipes I have tried myself is just adding them to a simple salad. My Roasted Beet Salad combines the flavor of blue cheese and fresh dill with the mildly sweet flavor of fresh beets. Simple, healthy, and easy to make when you are in a hurry.
The first step to making some of these beet recipes is to learn how to roast fresh beets. Yes, you can use canned beets but honestly, I think the best beet recipes start with fresh beets. Local is great but beets don’t grow all that will in our warm southern region so I rarely find beets at my local farmers markets. I say buy what you can find…
