Beet rosti is awfully good, if you like the earthy sweetness that makes beets beet-y (and sounds much better than "beet pancake").

But my favorite way to eat beets is roasted, sliced, and marinated while still warm with balsamic vinegar, thinly sliced red onion, celery seed and salt.

Are these frozen, sliced beets?

Below please find links to two of my favorite beet recipes. The first is a delicious cold beet soup and the second a fabulous salad which incorporates roasted beets with sauteed beet greens and toasted pumpkin seeds. You will enjoy them both.

I roast different beets in foil packets in the oven, then cool, peel and dice. I like to mix them with baby greens, crumbled goat cheese and spiced/sugared pecans. A light vinnegarette and you have a wonderful salad which can be a main course or side.

Chocolate Beet Cake. Trust me. It's amazing -- I used Joy the Baker's recipe. It ended up being the best chocolate cake I had ever made, beets or no beets. I had a little trouble with the frosting, but I'm frosting-impaired, so I don't fault the recipe. And it's gorgeous!

I just came across an inspired recipe for beets with pistachio sauce on a fellow food52ers blog:

Call me crazy, but I like my beets roasted, and just sliced, with a bit of balsamic vinaigrette, maybe some fresh dill and a pinch of salt. Simple is best sometimes.
