Day 80: Beets with Feta ♥

Beets with Feta
A quick, simple and oh-so-easy way to fall in love with beets. Just dice or slice roasted beets, top with good feta crumbles and add a squeeze of lemon juice.

2005: So simple, so sumptuous! A late stop at a neary farm stand yielded a bonanza: four big bunches of beets, four bucks. (Perhaps other places put things on sale on Sunday afternoon?) I cooked 'em all so look for recipes using cooked beets over the next several days.

2011: Back in 2005, this was the sixth beet recipe I posted in three months. No wonder I was on my way to being named 'beet queen'! But this remains one of the very favorites, so very simple, the earthy beets and the tangy feta, brightened with lemon juice. When I want to introduce people to beets, this is the first choice.


Hands-on time: 5 minutes
Time to table: 5 minutes
Serves 4

2 large cooked beets, diced or sliced (see TIPS)
Feta cheese, crumbled
Lemon juice

Arrange diced or sliced beets on four small plates, top with feta. Sprinkle with fresh lemon juice. That's it! Now enjoy!

This is My Favorite Way to Roast Beets but there are other good ways, too, see all the beet recipes for more methods.

  1. Back from Farmers Market with bunch of beets, found your post from 2005. Isn't Google wonderful! Can't wait to try it.

  2. Liz ~ Oh yeah, I was tempted by beets today too, too bad, was walking the dog and didn't bring along a wallet. But they were so pertty! Have you seen all the beet recipes? Hope you love 'em!
