I know they are good for you, but beets have never been my favorite. I usually find the combination of earthy sweetness to be cloying and something I generally avoid. But I try to be an open minded foodie and thought I would mess around with beets and see if I could come up with something tasty.
You could really use this recipe with just about any root vegetable. Sweet potatoes, carrots and parsnips would all be good. And, I bet you anything, your kids will like this too…mine do.
