Forget Roasting: Try Grilling Your Beets!

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

The thing to know about grilling beets is the method is much the same as if you were roasting them (in other words: there’s very little learning curve here!). You’ll douse them with a little olive oil, wrap in a foil pouch and put on the grill until tender, usually about 20 minutes or so. 

At this point, many cooks will let them cool to the touch, slice and re-oil each, and place them back on the grill to get those nice char marks. They’ll have a deep smokiness that typical roasted beets just don’t have, and can be done at the same time that you’re grilling other things — just give them their own little piece of real estate on the barbecue.  

Have you ever tried grilling beets?
