#1 Roast and eat by themselves or on a salad. My fav is: arrugula, roasted, corn, beets and lime cumin dressing.

#2 Peel, shave thin pieces, marinate the raw beet slices in evo, lemon juice, and garlic...enjoy.

Also I feel the need to share that the local brew pub here, has a beet beer called Beet-L-Juice right now.

3) Saute the greens in garlic and olive oil, then give the roots to someone else who likes food that tastes like dirt.

I second roasting them. I usually cut them into wedges, toss them with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a splash of champagne or white wine vinegar (to cut down on the sweetness), then roast for about 30 to 40 minutes.

Sometimes I'll add the roasted beets to a pasta salad or have them with some greens and toasted chickpeas.

I also suggest roasting. That's the only way I eat them.

roast them with lemon juice and zest, olive oil and lots of cumin. Throw on some nice fresh chopped parsley and more lemon juice when they are done.

I just made Ricki's beetaroni a few days ago and it was the bomb! It was easy to prepare and it tasted smokey and delicious - no dirt taste!

oh oh - whenever I have excess beetroot I make beetroot hummous. Because I'm always eating hummous. Plus it makes it even better for you AND it goies deep pink. Who doesn't want to eat a pink paste?

I made beet bean burgers before and they turned out really well. I don't remember everything that went in them (or specific amounts) but it was:
Grated beets
Black beans
Gluten
Taco seasoning
salsa

yum yum yum
