This is delicious. My husband and I enjoyed it. Actually it was surprisingly good. I didn't expect much. I've had this recipe printed out for a couple of years and never made it.
I'm growing a lot of beets this year and wanted something new to do with them.

I followed the recipe as written. I think that it's important to follow the directions and add the lemon juice and honey at the end. That really brightens up the dish. It tasted a little bland while it was cooking.

I used the food processor to grate the beets and onions. I didn't use any of the beet tops. I did put a dollop of sour cream on the top. Today when I had the leftover for lunch, I used plain, non-fat yogurt instead of the sour cream. It tasted fine.

I'll be making this recipe again. I'm thinking of serving this to my garden group (five of us) at our monthly get together. I think it would be great with chicken salad or grilled salmon and garlic bread or onion muffins.

Thanks for a great new dish.

my grandma was russian and she did this recipie almost just exactly like that...no other veggies, and no grated chunks....just a nice flavoured puree base.

i think she light have slightly friend the beet or onions or both in a little butter ( not too much) for extra flavouring. and she didnt use honey or lemon, maybs sugar ;)
