Whenever I need cooked beets, I don't boil them, I bake them. They're less messy, easier to handle and far tastier. The moisture is inside the beets, not in the boiling water. I've included 2 ways to use them.
Every Easter my Mom would make this potato salad. This is not exactly hers but my version. Don't wait for Easter make it for your next picnic!
Do use new potatoes if you like them firm but I myself like my potatoes soft so I find myself using russets, and if you don't want a precise cut salad with firm potatoes use russet. I find myself rough cutting the russets potatoes because they do fall apart and add to the creaminess of the dressing.
FYI-You can toss the cubed, cooked, still warm, potatoes with the vinegar or beet juice and let set till cool even up to over night. Then add remaining ingredients.
This soup is surprisingly good. The ginger is very subtle and the color is beautiful. When you want to use up garden produce in the fall, make this and freeze in zip lock bags for winter eating. Full of fiber and vitamins. This recipe is from cdkitchen.com I am guessing on prep time as I pulled the carrots and beets from the garden, etc.
This is a yummy, healthy salad recipe, which will have you come back for more. :)
Well at least, if you like earthy beet flavour, combined with sweet apple and salty feat cheese. I hope youll enjoy!
The original version of this dish comes from German chef Tim Mälzer.
This salad can be served as a main dish--it has a combination of grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds to provide complete proteins--or as a side dish. It is a versatile dish, too. You could easily swap out various ingredients to adjust it to your taste. For example, you could swap oranges for limes, rice for wheat berries, lentils for beans, parsley for cilantro, or roasted sweet potatoes for beets.
One of my favorites. I love it when it's served right away over ice. Just make sure nto to over power the carrot juice with the beet. Try to use cold veggies it is a big difference in taste if you juice room temp veggies.
This is from Jessica Seinfeld's Cookbook called Deceptively Delicious. I have not tried this, but am posting recipes for others. When I do make them, I will make a version that does not use pancake mix and share my results.
Beets are good for us - full of Vitamin C, folate, potassium and fiber. But if you are like me, you hardly ever eat them! The orange flavour in these beets is a fun twist to a vegetable that doesn't deserve the faces made at the thought of eating them
This is a winning recipe that was printed in the April/May 2009 Taste of Home. It is credited to Kristin Lossak of Bozzman, MT. I have not used the goat cheese but have made this several times using crumbled feta. When adding the cheese, I don't measure but give a nice sprinkling. The dressing makes it all come together.
This dish is from Maharastra, India and it is usually served with rice and lentils. It is very creamy and you may want to cut the yogurt back to 8 oz, depending on personal taste. Believe it or not it is low cal and high potassium
This comes from one of my food and wine cookbooks. I wish I could post the photo! So lovely. This would be a perfect salad for Valentine’s day. You could buy canned, sliced beets if you wanted to skip the roasting step.
This thick soup of herbs, greens, legumes, grains, and noodles is cooked in a fried onion based liquid. It is customarily served as a starter before the actual meal is served. To serve, the soup is topped with creamy whey (kashk), fried onions with turmeric, lightly fried garlic, and fried mint. Without the whey, the soup is actually completely vegan, which is quite nice.
