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, melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high. Add carrot ribbons to skillet; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in parsley, salt, and pepper. Gently stir in beets.
