Cooking with Beets
Enjoy our favorite beet recipes for dishes with earthy flavor and great meaty texture.
First up is Winter Salad with Roasted Beets and Citrus Reduction Dressing. Don’t say you don’t like beets until you’ve tried them roasted. A tip for avoiding a horror scene in the kitchen: Use thin latex gloves to rub the skins off roasted beets hot from the oven so hands don’t get stained. This salad combines the glorious colors of red and golden beets with a tangy citrus dressing. The earthiness of the beets is a good contrast to the bright and bitter greens, too.
We put a new twist on this hearty beet soup, using every part of the signature ingredient. Leafy beet greens take the place of borscht's traditional cabbage. You not only use the whole beet (less waste) but also get the most nutrition for your buck, as beet greens have nearly twice the fiber of other greens.
This hearty grain salad featuring blood orange sections, beets, kumquats, and avocado is brimming with rich colors, textures, and nutrients from the vitamin- and protein-packed ingredients.
