Beets shouldn't be relegated to cold salads or simple roasted vegetable medleys. There are so many wonderful ways to use beets that span each meal of the day, so when readers asked for some new beet recipes that weren't your standard simple beet salads, we jumped at the chance to offer a few of our favorites.
The nice thing about these recipes are their variety and the fact that many of them encourage using the whole beet. Making beet soup? Roast the greens for a healthy (and tasty) soup topper. There are ideas for morning, noon, and evening that cover a range from hearty to light and everything in between.
