If you love the sweet, earthy flavor of beets but think you don't have time to cook them on a weeknight, you'll appreciate this fast microwave method. Wrapping peeled beet wedges in parchment paper allows them to steam to tender perfection in less than half the time it would take to roast them.

How to Make It

Step 1

Wrap beets in microwave-safe parchment paper. Microwave at HIGH until tender, 11 to 12 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, peel orange; cut into segments, and discard membranes. Combine beets, orange segments, and cannellini beans on a small platter. Sprinkle evenly with cilantro, vinegar, salt, and pepper.
