Beets

*Image by craigCloutier

My mom thinks that I should add eating beets to my list of goals for this next year.  Growing up, beets were always suspect in my house.  With a family that eats cold soup the color of Peptol-Bismol during the summer while proclaiming its goodness, I was never convinced.  Beet sounded awful, pastel buttermilk beet soup sounded and looked even worse.  I get that as an adult my palate may have changed, I would be willing to try a golden roasted beet or something small and non-committal.  I'm not sure even if I love beets if I'll ever be sold on the pink soup.  Do you have any recipes I should try?

I didn't say add šaltybarščiai to your list of food goals, just beets, as in roasted beets in a salad or as a side dish. Buttermilk is a whole different challenge.

I like roasted beets with olive oil and sea salt. I just peel, then slice, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt before I toss them in the oven.

Try this! Giner, garlic roasted GOLDEN beets, if the red kind make you finiky. :)
