Gone are the days of having to suck it up and stomach the taste of irony beets for those who don’t love the vibrant antioxidant packed root vegetable. It’s easier than ever to sneak them in with surprisingly delicious trending eats like beet hummus and lattes. I’m rounding up my favorite ways to get your fix.
Beet Nice Cream
This is one of my favorite recipes I shared with Edible for sneaking in veggies! It uses coconut milk to make it a dairy free “ice cream” with a base of frozen beets and bananas.
2. Beet Warm Cereal Bowl
Beets taste best when paired with the right crunch. Try them in a grain salad with roasted nuts and some crunchy cinnamon chickpeas in this sweet and savory favorite.
4. Beet Falafel Balls
Try adding beets to your baked or fried chickpea balls next time you’ve got them in the food processor. This recipe I wrote for Edible is a tasty gluten free, vegan and antioxidant packed take on this mediterranean favorite.
5. Beet Hummus
Blending steamed, then frozen beets with avocado and chocolate makes for a delicious smoothie bowl! I love purchasing the already steamed, vacuum sealed beets and sticking them in the freezer.
8. Beet Latkes
These are one of my seasonal favorites for the holidays. It’s so much fun to switch up the typical potato pancake with the purple variety! I’ll be sending out the recipe to my newsletter subscribers soon, so be sure to sign up at the bottom of this page to get it sent to your inbox.
9. Beet Latte
I spent my whole life hating pickles until I discovered pickled beets! Their sweetness takes the edge off the overwhelming vinegar taste the usual cukes have. I love picking them up from our farmers market and using them in dishes like this Spicy Sesame Bowl.
