What to do with beets?

These were in my produce box this week, and I have no clue what to do with them. I'm kind of afraid of them, since I know they "bleed" and can be messy!

Any ideas?

Re: What to do with beets?

  • Roast them in the oven- DELICIOUS.  Recipe from my mom's friend (these were relatively large beets- the slices were the size of your palm):

    I peel the beets and then place on a baking sheet and drizzle olive oil on them.  Bake until done in the oven @350 degrees.  It depends on how big the beets are as to how long it takes to get them done.  In this case, it took about 1 hour and 20 minutes.  After I cooked them, I drizzled balsamic vinegar on them. Salt and pepper.  

  • I don't have an official recipe, but I went to a restaurant that added a beet to their mashed potatoes. I would assume they just cooked them and mashed up together. Gave them a neat taste and they were purple!

  • I roast them in the oven as well whole, peel, chop, and then mix in some goat cheese.  Delicious!  Also - I alsways found them hard to peel, so I cut off the tops, pierce the skin and roast - then the skin will just peel off.  They definitely are messy, but so worth it - IMO.
