Stunning image, Nicole… Where did you find these lovely golden beets this time of year… these are my all time faves. Hope that you are well dear friend.
Cannot wait for farmer’s markets in a few months…but I guess the snow needs to melt first…lol…

I’ve always found beets to be delicious, especially when baked in a mixture of balsamic vinegar and provence herbs or tossed into a salad with goat cheese, but for us wine drinkers the added benefit is that they’re good for your liver!

We grow beets every year in the garden and they are by far one of our favorite fresh vegetables. We steam ours and then add the left over water with all of that great redness to the pot that we use to cook whole grain rice. Makes for a very interesting dish.

Lovely pic! What kind of beets are they? They look different from the regular dark skinned beets.

I love beets – but the deep purple are my favorite. I love them roasted with garlic, thyme and olive oil and then tossed with some green beans, fetaand toasted almonds with a balsamic dressing – yum! Great site!

try this easy way to enjoy fresh beets:
roast 4-6 large, whole beets on a cookie sheet @ 450 F until tender cool, peel and cut into 1-2 inch cubes place in a bowl, add 2 tbsps sour cream and 1 tsp grated horseradish (from a jar is fine) stir gently until beets are coated add kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste stir some more and serve enjoy !

Beets really have antixodiants and their strong colour has potent cancer fighting properties.
