Yummy Boiled Beets (Really!)
beets (any amount and size)
1Bring water to a boil. Using a sharp knife, mark an X in the skin of each beets. Then drop the beets (whole) in and boil until the beets are tender. (10-15 minutes) You should be able to stick a fork in them when ready.
2 Remove the beets from the water and strain. Rinse with cool water. Then slip the skins off.
3 Cut the beets into whatever shape is the best mouth appeal to you. (I like them cubed).
4 Place the beets in a bowl and drizzle them with enough olive oil to coat them. Add salt and pepper to taste.
5 You can eat them warm, reheat them, or eat them cold - whatever your preference. (I like them cold.)
