    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.

    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.
