Let me say that I am not a picky eater and I eat almost any vegetable. However I have never tasted a beet. Not sure why, they just never appealed to me.
But this past weekend, my husband and I were in a restaurant with my 14 month old daughter and my in-laws and my mother-in-law had a salad with roasted beets on it. My daughter was totally interested in the beets, tasted them, and then couldn't get enough!
I'm lucky that my daughter is a terrific eater, and now I'd like to add beets to ever-growing list of things that she eats. But I don't know where to begin. I roast vegetables all the time (cauliflower, brussels sprouts, onions, baby carrots are what I usually make). I don't know if I really need a "recipe" for the beets, but I saw this on epicurious.com and thought it was a good place to start, mostly because it gave me some directions plus she loves the carrots too.
Is there anything else I should know about roasting beets? Is there a better way to cook them?
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
