Recipe: Grilled Beets

Grilled Beets

As I mentioned in my last CSA post we were planning to try a new beet recipe on the grill last night. It was actually the first time we’d ever cooked beets at home and the results were out of this world PLUS it was so simple. I included a photo of our results for you to se for yourself. If you get beets through a farm share you need to try this. Actually, if you see good looking beets anywhere, your farmer’s market, the grocery store, you need to try this! I found the recipe on the Waltham Fields Community Farm site (our CSA Farm), it had been submitted by a shareholder.

Note, we made it without the walnuts and it was still great. I also peeled the beets which the recipe didn’t mention.

Enjoy!! Let me know if you try it!

Grilled Beet Packets with Balsamic Vinegar and Walnuts

Instead of grilling you could roast the beets in the oven. This recipe is from The Vegetarian Grill by Andrea Chesman.

  • 4 medium beets (approx 3/4 lb)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper

Cut beets into 1/2 inch slices. Put beets and walnuts on large piece of foil. Drizzle with the oil and vinegar and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Seal the packets so no liquid or steam will escape. Grill the packets over medium hot grill for 20-25 minutes (baby beets will take about 15 minutes). Open packet and test with fork for doneness and then serve hot. (Serves 2)
