Help make my family love beets!

My kids are wonderfully diverse eaters at 6 and 4 years old. However, I find myself only cooking the same produce over and over because my husband only likes: brocolli, corn, winter squash, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, potatoes, peas, icbeurg and romaine lettuce, I include a vegetable side dish with every meal but when he's home, I tend not to branch out. I cook veggies as basic as possible, meaning I don't believe in adding "cream" or "cheese" to entice the kids to eat. I've been luring him to try new things for the sake of the kids and one thing I think he would love that I have NEVER brought into the house is beets. He was traumatized as a child by repeated meals with canned beets that he HAD to finish before bed. I was explaing to him that beets, when prepared correctly, taste nothing like those from a can. I love them but have forgotten about them because of his strong resentment. I am confident I can win him back to team beet, but I have ONE shot....I need help from Chowhounders!! Hit me with your best beet recipe...it can contain NO onions though, THANK YOU!
