    dojemi's Note:

    My DH loves beets.........plain and simple. There are a numerous amount of ways to serve them. When cooked, grate some orange rind over the beets. Dress them with a vinaigrette. Add some sweet onion, parsley, and hard-boiled egg chunks for a hearty salad. Mix with vegetables.

      I love beets and this simple way to prepare them. I agree with Bergy that they are just great tasting plain. I did serve them this time with a orange flavoured pilaf (including orange rind) which went very well. I will be using this recipe over and over again. Made for THINK PINK RECIPE TAG EVENT - OCTOBER 2011

      I love beets and after boiling them I added some balsamic vinegar mixed with a little sugar after slicing the beets. It comes out delicious!
