Beet suggestions, please

I love beets, but am stuck in a rut. Usually I roast them with meat, but I need some new ideas. I'm looking more for entrees or sides, but not for salads or sweets. Here's one recipe with beets that I love making (and it works out beautifully in my roaster)

Double Roast Chicken

I am stick in the beet/arugula/goat cheese rut. But it's a good rut.

You can sautee red beets till done, then remove and sautee chopped up beet greens. Then combine. This makes for a stunning red and green Xmas side dish.

Add some onion and garlic too.

You can roast beets, parsnips and turnips for a winter veggie medley. You can mash them -- yellow beets can go with potatoes and cabbage in bubble and squeak.

I'll thinkof others ...

Roast the beets, then puree and make a soup. Or use them with different cheeses and make homemade ravioli with a beurre noisette.

I dunno, I don't really do a whole lot to beets because after roasting them because I like to showcase their natural flavors and sweetness.

Jenny, I do believe I'll try that one soon - sounds yummy!

Ironchef, do you have a great beet soup recipe you'd like to share?

roast beets, peel them, slice em as you like, squeeze fresh orange juice on them and sprinkle with fresh dill. with or without sour cream, WOW!

Baby beets are great with pasta and marinara as a side of the pasta bowl item.

and all the other wonderful ideas you've already gotten.

My mom used to make great "Harvard Beets", which in essence are just peeled cooked diced beets in a lightly orange-flavored glaze.

I did once try a recipe for "creamed beets", but not surprisingly the sauce turned a rather unappetizing Pepto Bismol pink. It tasted fine, but was visually disturbing - lol!!!
