When using beet roots in receipes, do you need to cook them or can they be used raw? With skin or without? and if you need to cook them how long before using them? I use the beet greens in my daily drink, but I'm left with all of the beet roots. Since I'm not a fan of cooked beets would love to put them to use instead of throwing them out... Suggestions welcome!
I actually think steamed beets are less "earthy" tasting than raw, however you can use both in the NutriBullet. Simply scrub off the dirt and slice into smaller cubes or circle slices. I'm actually not quite sure how long it takes to steam a beet because I've never timed it...I just steam it until fork tender...I'm assuming it's somewhat like a sweet potato - about 10 minutes or so. You could also try to roast them and add them to a salad! You're right in that these do have a strong flavor...so the key may just be what you mix it with. I find raw cacao an excellent combination!
