  1. I can’t find the beet braised lentils recipe. It just tells how to cook the beets.
    I love beets and lentils and the combo sounds great

    1. Hi Tish, just click on the first recipe on this page at the top. It’s worth seeking out- I really love it!

  2. I often pickle them, but also like to have cooked beets in the fridge for salads. However, their shelf life is quite short. They always start to mold. Any tips to extend the life??

    1. Hi Vaughn, they typically last 5 days (cooked) in the fridge for me- are you finding this is less for you? I suppose you can always freeze in smaller batches.

    1. I’m fairly lazy when it comes to peeling things, also I feel much of the nutrients are in the peel. So I normally either peel after roasting or don’t peel at all!

  3. Thanks for all the beet inspiration. My husband made the Beet Braised Lentils and added goat cheese. Wonderful!

  4. Just hauled in most of our beets from the garden and found your best beet recipes. Very excited to try them. Your Borscht and Beet and lentil stew are on the menu this week. Cheers!
