With their deep, dark red color and vibrant red streaked green leaves, there’s just no denying the beauty of a beet.
Chock full of nutrients, beets are sweet and delicious — and when cooked properly, a beet will have a velvety, succulent texture that will melt in your mouth.
And never throw away the gorgeous beet greens! As nutrient rich as a beet root is, its leaves pack even more nutrients! (If you love the beet flavor, you’ll love the greens — simply sauté them with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.)
