Orange Kissed Beets


Although the recipe called for canned beets, I had the real thing, so I roasted the beets and sliced them and replaced the canned variety. This is an easy recipe and it cooked quickly. It makes a flavorful side dish and I served it with chicken, green beans and a salad. That made for a very nice dinner.




Ingredients:

1/3 cup orange juice

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

1 tablespoon oil

1/2 teaspoon cornstarch

1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

1/8 teaspoon pepper

3 beets roasted and sliced

2 tablespoons golden raisins


Method:



In a saucepan over medium heat, cook and stir orange juice, brown sugar, oil, cornstarch, ginger, salt and pepper until thick.




Add the cooked beets and raisins; heat through.  Yield: 2 servings.



Eat and Enjoy.

  1. I sometimes hesitate with fresh beets because they are so messy, but I've learned to use rubber gloves and it helps. I think fresh beets taste best. I love the flavors with the ginger and orange juice and raising. Looks delicious.

  6. My introduction to beets as a child were canned. I never really like d them until trying the fresh version! Ginger and orange is something I never would have thought to add to beets, but I can see how it would work beautifully.
