These, however, were pretty tasty. Surprisingly enough!
Yes, they still had that "dirt" taste, or as my boss said "taste of the earth" (whatever!) ... but with the sweet chili seasoning, they were way more tolerable than just plain ole beets ;-)
Here's what you need to make this little side dish ...
Package of Love Beets (I liked the Sweet & Fire ones)
1/2 package of feta cheese crumbles
1/2 to 3/4 cup of pistachios (shelled)
Chop up the beets into smallish pieces. I figure the smaller the pieces, the better you can mix all 3 ingredients ...
Toss everything in a bowl and combine everything. Put a lid on the package and stick in the fridge for 30 minutes or so ...
Serve up and be surprised that beets are pretty tasty after all!
I'm still not a "fan" of beets, so to speak, but after a quick survey in the office, 4 of the 6 people LOVE beets and gave me tips on how to prepare from raw form, whereas me and the young'en in the office were like "ehhh...not so sure" ... BUT I will say, THIS combination did have me eating them, pretty easily.
So yes, I will continue to try beets in different forms, they've been said to have great inflammation properties, lots of fiber, so yeah, I am going to really continue to try these and acquire a better taste!
What about YOU? Beets? Yes or No? And if yes, how do you serve them?
