I ate my first Beet, another milestone in my quest to improve my limited vegetable intake. My wife wanted to try Beets on the grill and I had no choice but to truly try it and maybe even like them. Actually these photos are the third time we've grilled beets in the last two weeks. They're growing on me and they sure add color to the meal. For the first time in my life I am actually trying to improve my eating habits and my diet. Beets were a big accomplishment for me!
Here's how we grilled them:
- We peeled them and quartered them like potatoes
- Coat with olive oil
- Like potatoes, beets need 20-30 minutes to cook on the grill and become soft
- Grill at medium to low heat 350-400F
