READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

Easy as anything to make and they taste so good. Great for hurried weeknights and big dinners when everythings in a rush. Use fresh beets if you like, just roast, peel, and use in the recipe.

Love this easy recipe. I quadrupled it because I'm taking it to a pig roast tomorrow as my dish to pass. I substituted the water with beet juice using my home made pickled beets. I added orange zest, and toasted almonds.
