I like making ginger pickled beets, beet burgers, juicing, "raw ravioli" and borscht. Any other ideas?

The Shredded Parsnip and Beet Salad in Pineapple Vinaigrette from Veganomicon is really good!

I've been really into roasting them whole (in a foil pouch) with olive oil, herbs, garlic, salt & whole peppercorns this summer so far. Cool, peel, and toss with sherry vinegar before slicing. I've been enjoying that over salads, grits and pasta so far.

I've been getting a whole load of beetroots from my CSA type thing. Today I blended 3 or 4 small ones with some fresh basil, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper, and used it as a pasta sauce. Almost a beetroot pesto, I guess. It was so yummy.

I still have another 10 or so that I roasted today that'll need using soon. I usually just eat roasted beetroot straight up, but I'm interested in some more ideas. I've never had borscht... doe anyone have a tried and true recipe?

I love the Harvard beets and the six shades of red soup in Color Me Vegan, and there's a yummy harissa beet salad in Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen.

Roasted beet salad -- olive oil, balsalmic vinegar, dijon mustard, shallots, salt. Sweet, savory salty goodness

The borscht from Voluptuous Vegan! It incorporates the beet greens too. It is so good.

Its not earth-shattering or anything, but I like this salad they have at Sammy's Woodfired Pizza: roasted golden beets, arugula, red quinoa, avocado, red onion, macadamia nuts, and a citrus vinagrette. I keep telling myself I should just make it at home since its pretty straightforward.

I don't really like beets, but I was gifted some so I made them into chips like Terra Chips. Good to eat straight up or super good piled on a salad with a creamy dressing.

Yes! I am also a fan.
I also like to make foil roasted beats like jdfunks described, but on the grill when it's too hot to turn the oven on. Actually, what I do is throw the foil wrapped beats in with the coals (I use a chimney starter so there is no lighter fluid to worry about), cook my dinner on top of the grill, and the next day I have yummy smokey beats to slice into salad or heat up in the microwave.

I like the picnic wraps from "Garden of Vegan"
They're basically just beans (refried, black, whole whatever...I've used any and all here, even baked!), shredded beets and carrots, sunflower sprouts and seeds, salsa, cheez if you want it (I've never used it on these) and then wrap 'er up!
I live for shredded beets on salads.
There's a really yummy juice recipe that's a beet, parsley, spinach, carrot, and apple.
I love to roast beets with other root veggies and squashes to make roasted veggie wraps. I put whatever herbs I feel like on them, spray them with oil and throw them in the oven spread out on a pan. I let them get crispy and then put them in wraps with some tomato, garlic-parsley mayo (i just chop up garlic and parsley into veganaise. Too cheap to buy the pre-flavored stuff and too lazy to make my own from scratch entirely), and some spinach and broccoli slaw.
Somewhere on the ppk forums I got a recipe for a dessert with beets. It was a brownie or cake. I've made it twice and it was divine. I can't remember where and can't find a link now but maybe if you search you can find it?? Its so good.

I love love love borscht as a chilled puréed summer soup. I add about half a cup of chopped cucumber and lots of fresh dill when serving. Yum! Something about dill and beets goes really well together.

I also like a marinated white bean salad with beets, fresh dill, and capers.

That's awesome! The one time I tried to make beet chips I set off the smoke alarm.
