INGREDIENTS

  • 2 pounds red beets, washed
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • a handful of cilantro, chopped

INSTRUCTIONS - HOW TO COOK BEETS:

To roast the beets, place them on a baking sheet and roast in the oven at 400 F for one hour or until you can easily pierce them with a fork.

    To boil the beets, place them in a pot. Add water ( make sure the beets are fully covered with water). Bring the water to a boil and cook the beets until you can easily pierce them with a fork. It may take over one hour depending on the size of the beets. Note that the beets might stain the pot.
      To steam-roast the beets, place them in a baking dish. Add about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of water. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil making sure the foil doesn’t touch the beets. Place in the oven and roast at 425F for about 50 minutes to 1 hour or until you can easily pierce them with a fork.

        Important!. Always cool the beets before handling as they get extremely hot. Also, note that red beets will stain your hands and might also stain your dishes.


        TO MAKE THE MEDITERRANEAN BEETS WITH GARLIC & OLIVE OIL:

          Peel and chop the beets. Place them in a bowl. Add chopped garlic, olive oil, and chopped cilantro. Sprinkle with sea salt.
