Warm Beets with Ginger

Serves 4

Beets are an underappreciated food for energy and more life. Eat them often!


  • 3 large beets cut into small dice (about 1/3 in)

  • 3 leeks, chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 1/2 tbsp minced ginger

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • Salt and pepper


Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté leeks until slightly softened then add garlic, ginger, beets, and salt. Increase heat to medium high and cook stirring frequently for 4 more minutes. Reduce heat to low and cover, cooking until beets are crisp tender. Season with salt and pepper and serve as is, warm, or chilled. Great as an accompaniment to roasted or grilled chicken or grilled fish.
