Maybe you have bad childhood memories of being forced to eat all of your beets at the dinner table, or maybe you’ve just never given them a second glance at the grocery store. Either way, beets are one of the most underrated vegetables, but these beet recipes will help you reimagine all of the ways you can enjoy this versatile veggie.

Blueberry Beet Pancakes

Beets in pancakes? It’s true! These soft, fluffy pancakes combine cinnamon, beets, and blueberries into the dreamiest morning meal. As a note, the recipe calls for whole wheat pastry flour, but you can substitute that for your flour of choice.

Coconut Blueberry Beet Smoothie

While you may normally associate beets with savory dishes and flavor profiles, their mild natural flavor makes them a great addition to any morning smoothie. This recipe uses coconut and blueberries for a sweet way to start your day.

Beet And Chicken Tacos

Beets, carrots, and chicken come together with a chili-mayo sauce for the perfect weeknight taco recipe. The best thing about these tacos is that nearly all of the ingredients can be switched out for what you have on hand or prefer, making them incredibly versatile.

Beet Veggie Burgers

Between Meatless Mondays and the rise of meatless burgers, nuggets, and sausages, plant-based eating is growing increasingly popular. These beet burgers are sure to impress even the staunchest carnivore with their spot-on texture and umami flavor.

Chocolate Beet Cake

It might sound too good to be true, but it’s not! This gluten-free dairy-free cake is just as scrumptious as any other chocolate cake you’ve had, but with the superpower of hidden beets for moisture.

Sweet Potato And Beet Hash

This easy, simple hash is not only delicious on its own, but it makes a great base for all of your breakfast or dinner desires. Add a variety of meats or eggs to it for an instant boost in flavor and protein.
