Beets on the Grill

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

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
