Beets can be found in the product aisle year-round, but the season for these root vegetables is right now!
Fresh beets are a staple in our kitchen, due to their earthy flavor and meaty texture. Plus, they are an excellent source of folate, as well as dietary fiber, potassium and vitamin C – making them an obvious choice to incorporate into our recipes!
When selecting, choose small to medium-sized globes with firm, smooth skin. Freshest beets will still have its leaves attached, and the foliage should be green – not brown or wilted. Once you’ve selected your beets, store them in a produce bag in the coldest part of your fridge for up to two weeks. As soon as they turn soft, however, throw them out.
Below are two recipes that will incorporate these root vegetables into your diet. Enjoy!
