We're trying one new veggie each week. This is the first time I ever bought raw beets, I tried this recipe, WOW!!! I didn't have grapefruit or lemon juice, so I subbed orange juice and key lime juice. My husband (who was very skeptical at first) LOVED this!!! We will repeat it!

This was totally yummy - after I substituted grapefruit and some of the lemon juice with...Orangina! It was tangy and delicious!!

Really yummy - I only kept it covered for the first 15 mins and uncovered for the 45 mins to get some carmelization. Yum. Used orange juice instead of grapefruit (didn't have it on hand). Really really good. Could top with crumbled feta or goat chz - even better!

I made this for the first time for a holiday party and it went over very well. I had to fudge some of the ingredients for the puree but it was a delicious and forgiving recipe.

I tried this recipe for the first time with fresh beets and carrots from my garden. My family loved it!! I didn't change a thing in the recipe other than it said set aside a cup of the veg to blend. In order to blend it properly I roasted the veg and THEN set aside the veg as it was softer then.
