The green tops of the beets can also be eaten....

Add the beet greens and cook, uncovered until tender, about 2 minutes.
Heat 2-4 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium skillet.
Stir in one clove of garlic, minced and 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes;

Not only are beets good for you,
they taste delicious too...

  1. Good Evening Lynn, Well how strange, I posted this morning how I was waiting for my beetroot to grow and that I loved roasted beetroot and here you are saying the same..... we must be kindred spirits.
    I love roasted beetroot and my husband will love the pickled beetroot. I have all the ingredients to pickle the beetroot, so when they are grown I shall be pickling half of my beetroot. Thank you for the method, as I have never pickled beetroot before. I shall enjoy this.
    Best Wishes
