I would have never thought to add ginger to beets. I love beets. They are my favourite summer and fall veggie. Roasting them made the method far less messy than boiling while preserving the beet flavour. I used my Todd English Green Pan on the grill with a bit of water with the grill on low. It took about 1.5 hours, but I had the time. Once ready and cooled, I peeled off the skin and sauteed them in the pan with the ginger and balsamic. Mine didn't turn to a glaxe, but the mix of flavours was to die for!
Great recipe for beet lovers who want a variation from the ordinary. I will make this again and again! Thanks so much!
I chose this delicious recipe as one of our Thanksgiving feast side dishes because it is both easy and elegant. A real crowd pleaser and something we will prepare again very soon. I would probably double the amount of balsamic next time but I made sure to use a good quality aged balsamic (ten years). I was hoping to find golden beets for a stunning presentation but none were available. Thanks for posting! See our menu here: Menu #41364 PS A major change was not peeling the beets. As long as they are on the smallish side, I think one can safely omit peeling the beets.
Yum! Good and good for you! (When I roast beets I roast them in a tightly covered dish in 1/4" of water at 425 for 40-60 minutes.)
These were wonderful! I enjoy having roasted beets anyway and usually just dress them up in olive oil and s&p, sometimes with balsamic, but never thought to try adding fresh ginger, which gave it an unexpected, but pleasant bite to the earthiness of the beet. Your recipe is definitely one for the keeper file, and I would urge anyone who may feel indifferent about beets to try this and see if this recipe works for them. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue
I made these up as part of my Christmas dinner. I roasted the beets ahead of time, then put them in a plastic zip lock bag for easy storage. I added the rest of the ingredients then placed the beets in the oven to warm up. The ginger and beets quite well together. Thanks Toni for a wonderful recipe!
So good, roasting veggies brings out so much more flavor, I used beets from my garden which made this recipe even more special! thanks Toni...Kitten:)
these are really good ,if you like beets try these.dee
This is a nice dish. I was a bit concerned that the ginger might overpower the beets, and I had some beets from my winter farm share that were pulled from the ground the day before so I didn't want that to happen. But it wasn't a problem at all - the beets and the ginger worked really nicely together.
Beets and ginger. Great combination. I never would have thought of it , but oh soooo good!!!!
