What Mixes Well With Beets?

Beets are a fantastic vegetable on their own, but they can also be mixed with other root vegetables to create a delicious and nutritious side dish. Some good combinations include beets and carrots, beets and turnips, or beets and parsnips. Adding a little butter or olive oil will help to enhance the flavor of the beets, and you can even sprinkle some fresh herbs on top for extra flavor. Give it a try!

Can you eat beets raw in a salad?

Yes, you can eat beets raw in a salad. Just make sure to peel the beets first, since the skin is tough and not very tasty. Beets are a great source of fiber, vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium. They have a slightly sweet and earthy flavor that goes well with other vegetables in a salad.

What can you add to beets to make them taste better?

You can add a variety of things to beets to make them taste better, but one of our favorites is to turn them into a beet tahini salad! The sweetness of the beets pairs perfectly with the nutty flavor of tahini, and it’s a great way to get some extra vegetables into your diet.
