Someone keeps giving me beets and I have no idea what to do with fresh beets and greens. Please help me! No. I am serious. Links... recipes... What do you do with them? I am at a total loss.

Does anyone have a bear?

  1. I absolutely love beets. I wish they grew better down here in the South. I like to cut off the greens, peel the skin off the root, cut into chunks and boil until tender. Some folks eat the greens like eating collards but I've never tried them. I'm sure you can find plenty of recipes online for beets. My sister in law is Lithuanian and she makes an interesting dish - beet soup - I don't care for it because it is cold, but it sure is the prettiest shade of pink! :) Pink soup...hmmmmm.

  4. We call them beetroot and they're gorgeous. I cook them to have cold in salads, roast them to have as a veggie with roast meat etc, make a delicious soup which can be served hot or cold and finally, the piece de resistance - beetroot and chocolate cake, very yummy and good for you! Loads of recipes if you Google. Good luck and enjoy.

  5. I just learned you can roast beets. I tried it and they're great that way. Preheat oven to 375, take greens off and wash the outside, but don't peel. Lay the beets on a large piece of foil, drizzle with olive oil, salt & pepper, fold the foil over the beets and seal like a packet. Bake for about an hour. When they're still warm but cool enough to handle, slip the skins off (easy), slice and enjoy!

  6. I LOVE beets. I cut off the tops and roots and wrap them in tin foil (because they bleed) then roast them in the oven at 350 for about 45 to an hour (check to see if they're tender). Let them cool off then peel off the skin. The skin should come off easily after they're roasted. Then slice them up in a salad with goat cheese or just eat them alone. So yummy and good for you. You can also puree them with a little chicken broth (or heavy cream) and some seasonings and make a soup. The greens can also be used in salads or sauteed up like spinach.

  7. I love growing beetroot in the vegie patch! Then when ready boil and either pickle or not. Fresh sliced beetroot in Steak Sandwiches with the lot! Yum!

    At one harvest and preparation for storage, I ate so many that I went into labour and had my beautiful Anthony!
