Breezy, do you ever eat the greens?

The greens are delicious as well. It takes a lot of beets to make a "mess" however.

Phil I have never tried Grilled Beets before but after looking at your post I have decided to try it.

Thanks and have a very happy day.

I solemnly declare I am a Gretchen Roasted Peeled Beet Convert. Not to mention, a Fanatic.

I finally got round to roasting some beetroot last week, following Gretchen's suggestion. All I can say is:

" If you don't try this, you're missing out on a HUGE treat"!

Wow!

I'm so glad everyone got something out of this thread. It's a really nice welcome to this forum.

I normally roast beets with the skin on and wrapped in foil .. I will deffinately try the skin 'em first method.

I adore the greens. Does the cockatoo leave any?

Hey, Cliveb. Cool. So glad you liked them. It is an entirely different dish, I think. Thanks for posting.

I love beets every way I have had them. I am going to try Gretchens way next. I also eat beet greens. They make a great salad.

Thanks guys. I love beets and am on a roasted vegetable kick. Can't seem to get enough of them! I never thought about roasting beets with the rest of the veggies. I'm off to the store for beets!

You might want to separate the beets from other veggies in a mixed roast. What was really pretty last Christmas was roasted beets with roasted carrot chunks.
