Beets

By |

Beets can’t be beat for their brilliant color and earthy, mild flavor.


Root vegetables continue to dominate the cold-weather Greenmarkets, inspiring brave shoppers with thoughts of hot, hearty dishes. For example: beets. They instantly evoke borscht, perhaps the best known beet-centric dish. Or try them tossed with olive oil and roasted with other root vegetables. They’ll tint the entire batch with their famous fuchsia hue. If you’re looking for a less traditional use for your beet haul, try slicing them thin and roasting ‘til crispy. They’ll make chips that will outshine your typical snacks — perfect for a Super Bowl party.

How do you like to prepare beets?
