I am trying to work in more vegetables to our diets. Mostly because I don’t want Maria growing up thinking peas, green beans, and corn are the only vegetables. Also because Chad and I could use more vegetables. So I decided I need to try and pick up different types of vegetables when I’m grocery shopping.
First go round, I picked beets. I’m not quite sure why. I remember liking them as a kid. I also remember my dad disliking them, so we didn’t have them very often. I have no idea even how my mom prepared them. I found this recipe and decided it was easy and would be easy to prepare with grilled pork chops. The only change I made was halving the recipe!
It was incredibly easy. I found out I still like beets. Chad found out he still does NOT like beets. Oh well. I may cook them a little bit longer next time, but I’m happy to have found another vegetable that I like!
Beets on the Grill
3 beets, scrubbed
1 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.
- Coat one side of a large piece of aluminum foil with cooking spray. Place beets and butter on foil; season with salt and pepper. Wrap foil over beets.
- Place packet on the grill grate. Cook 30 minutes, or until beets are very tender. Allow beets to cool about 5 minutes before serving. You don’t even need to peel to enjoy!
