Even easier--roast the beets whole and peel them afterwards.

Michelle Robinson

I was just givin a bag of fresh picked beets from a local farm and wanted a new idea on how to prepare them, love the roasting tips and will give it a whirl tonight.
cheers Michelle


The leaves need to be more widely recognised as a veggie in their own right I think! Next time you have beetroot instead of discarding the leaves treat them like chard and try frying them in olive oil and garlic. They're delicious and such a shame to waste.


I like to eat my beet leaves in a salad. If you don't like them tough you can blanch them but I like the texture just as they are. Try an orange/balsamic dressing.
