These beets are super quick to make because the recipe uses canned beets. The beets can be either sliced or whole. It just depends upon your preference.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain the beets reserving 1/3 cup of liquid; set beets aside.
  2. In a medium size saucepan, mix together the reserved liquid along with remaining ingredients, except beets.
  3. Stir to combine thoroughly and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  4. Cook stirring constantly until mixture begins to thicken, stir in beets and continue to cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until heated thorough.
  5. These can be served either hot, room temperature or they are fantastic cold.

My husband and I really enjoyed this beet recipe. It reminded me of my mother's recipe that she made often during my childhood. I've looked for this recipe for a long time and I'm so glad I finally found it. We'll have this often at my house. The only thing I did differently was, instead of using canned beets I cooked 4 fresh beets in boiling water and peeled them (which is how my mom used to prepare her beets). But I followed the rest of the recipe as written, and it was yummy. Thanks PaulaG. Made for 2014 Culinary Quest.
