If you like beets or find yourself with a bunch of them in the fridge (like from a CSA or Community Supported Agriculture share), this is a quick and easy recipe that makes beets taste delicious! As a Fort Collins Nutritionist, I often get asked how to cook certain fresh vegetables and I get asked about beets pretty frequently. Give this whole food recipe a try as a side dish with dinner this week!
