Stuffed Beets
This has to be my new favorite way of enjoying fresh from the garden beets!  Boiling beets until they are sweet and tender and filling them with a salad blend of onions, cilantro, eggs, oil and red-wine vinegar.  They make a great summer appetizer or side!  Another great way to use beets in the season of summer.

Recipe adapted from 1,080 Recipes

Ingredients:

  • 4 cooked beets
  • 2 hard boiled farm fresh eggs
  • 1/2 small red onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method:

  1. Rinse the beets and put them whole in a pan of cold water.  Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for about 1 hour or until the beets are tender.
  2. Once the beets are tender, remove them from the water and let them cool a few minutes.  Their skins should slip off.

  3. Peel the beets.
  4. Cut a small slice on the bottom of each beet so they will stand.
  5. Hollow out the centers, taking care not to break the “shells.”
  6. Dice the scooped out flesh and set aside.
  7. Scoop the yolks out of the hard boiled eggs and set aside.
  8. Finely chop the whites.
  9. Combine the diced beet, egg whites, onion and cilantro in a bowl.
  10. Whisk together the vinegar and oil in another bowl, stir in the egg yolks, and season with salt and pepper, then pour over the beet mixture.
  11. Fill the beet “shell’s” with the mixture and season to taste.
  12. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
