Roasted Beets with Feta and Dill

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on

  I just have a simple side dish to share with you today.  I wrote about beets in my column for our local paper and this was the recipes that went with it.  It’s not too spectacular, but it tastes amazing.  Really, I could eat this for an entire meal.  In fact,  I think this would be awesome with a small amount of cooked wheat berries(and of course the beets chopped into bite sized pieces instead of sliced), and then it probably would be filling enough to be a meal.  I think I may try that with some more beets I have waiting in my fridge 🙂

Surprisingly enough, my kids actually loved this!  I don’t even know why that surprises me anymore.  Even if you think your kids might not like something, or might not appreciate the flavors, encourage them try it.  You never know when they’ll love something 🙂

How do you enjoy beets?  If you have kids, do they like beets?

I don’t know about you, but I’m excited for this weekend to be here!  Have a great one!

I like beets mostly raw or roasted but my husband and daughter will eat it in any form! I am not surprised about my daughter liking beets because she LOVES most veggies and is very adventurous with different flavors.

I love roasted beets! We eat them a lot, especially on salads. I’ve never tried them with feta, but it looks delicious.

Heidi, I was so excited to see this recipe on your blog, as this is exactly the most beautiful way to reach out to all those earthy and sweet flavours in the beets. I’m so glad you appreciate it, too. Lovely!
