Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (51 votes)

Try a sweet glaze on beets or other root vegetables to help balance their earthy flavor. This easy recipe will work with steamed carrots, turnips or rutabaga too.

creative way to fix beets

local beets from the farmers market this time of year were perfect for this recipe. The brown sugar added an extra flavor to the beets which complemented them well. Easy to make, too - I micowaved the beets

this dish was scarfed up and I could have made more

Yummy!

This is fantastic. I've made it with beets only and with a combination of beets and sweet potatoes (one time when I didn't have enough beets). Both ways were delicious, but I probably prefer the beet/sweet potato combo for the variety over just beets. My better half doesn't like beets, so he picked out most of the sweet potatoes. He ate them all in one meal. No leftovers for us that night.

Loved this. I usually roast my beets so this was a different way to cook them. They took 20-25 minutes to steam but I doubled the recipe and had a big mound of beets. No oranges or orange juice so I used Cointreau. Also used the same pot I steamed the beets in so less clean-up.

Organic beets, if you can't grow your own, are wirth the price in terms of flavor. They don't have that muddy flavor you get with regular grocery beets.

This was so good. normally beets tastes very earthy to me however the sweet flavor really did balance it. I will definitely make this glaze again. Also so simple!
