So, some of you may know I’m Polish and love stuffed cabbage. Today I’m sharing another favorite Polish recipe – sauted beets. Some of you may have never tasted beets. I doubt that beets have made it to your grocery list but let me tell you, they’re fabulous. Why?
I TOTALLY LOVE IT
* First of all, when do you ever eat beets? Never! But they’re healthy and good and fun to make. So do it at least once in your life so that you can say you have.
* Have you ever gone to a party where there was some crazy dish you talked about for weeks? Hello – that dish could be beets and your guests could me reminising for weeks…no, months, to come!
I WOULD IMPROVE IT
* Looking back on it, making this dish is a lot of work. The cleaning, boiling, grating…all take a while. Worth it for the nostalgic taste of beets for me but…you might find it cumbersome.
* Remember to wear plastic gloves and cruddy clothes. These suckers stain.
Rinse beets. Trim greens. Boil 20+ minutes. Peel skin. Shred on a grater. Saute in a pan with olive oils, onion, lemon juice or vinegar and salt/pepper. It really is pretty easy. Enjoy!
