If red beets aren’t your thing, I recommend giving golden beets a try.
I first bought golden beets from a farmer’s market, where the woman kindly told me “They won’t stain your hands and they roast up nice and sweet!”
She was right. Golden have a much more subtle taste and are nice and sweet.
As much as I love red beets, sometimes you risk the red colour dripping into your dish or onto your hands- not that I mind- and golden beets are a fun alternative.
I love to throw some chopped golden beets in with other mixed vegetables and roast them. But I also love them prepared like this, steamed, tossed with some olive oil and herbs, and served at room temperature.
This is a great dish to bring to a party or a barbecue as you don’t have to worry about heating it up and the flavour only gets better with time!
