Karen - this is a real winner - Beets have always been ugh food in our house. Everyone loved this one. Only change was that we used olive oil. There were NO leftovers.
I love beets but hated this version. I had to drain the sauce and then fry them before my husband would eat it.
Interesting combination of flavors. I'd never have imagined that cumin would go so well with beets. Toasted the cumin in a dry saucepan to intensify the flavor. Did not bother to skin or seed the tomatoes, and it didn't seem to matter, as they dissolved into the sauce--unlike the accomanying picture that shows the tomatoes as a visible ingredient.
I love beets. Seriously. I know that makes me weird, but that's okay. My husband doesn't like them, I usually just boil and season. So I go on a quest to find something that he might like... he said they were "okay" but my 4 year old ate two large helpings! We didn't have tomatoes so I substituted tomato sauce and I didn't have cumin seeds so I used the stuff in the jar. Overall, I think it was good, I think it would've been better with fresh tomatoes, but it was a keeper. I put some of the sauce over my oregano chicken I made that same night and it was devine!
My husband looked at his plate funny when I served him BEETS, of all things, but later he admitted they weren't too bad.
Was looking for something different to do with beetroot. This dish was very good, my husband loved it. We both love cumin and garlic and found these to go very well with the beetroot. I changed the method slightly by precooking the beets and making the "sauce" seperately. I then added the beets to the sauce. Went very well with grilled pork chops. Have to note though that all ingredients were freshly picked from our veggie garden and pork produced on our farm - all natural stuff!!!!
Absolutely delicious. I will definitely add this to my list of favorite recipes. My boyfriend and I loved it! We served it with basmati rice which soaked up the flavorful sauce. Next time I will cut the beets into smaller, bite sized pieces.
I left out the oil, and just used vegetable spray. I started by sauteing the onion, garlic and chopped beet, then added the cumin seeds and flour. Finally, I added in the water and tomatoes. When this was just about done, I added in the chopped beet greens, which I cooked until they began to wilt. This has great taste! I'll be making this again!
