Recipe from the blog A Doctor’s Kitchen


  • 2 pounds beets, without greens, scrubbed and peeled
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive, plus more for drizzling, if desired
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons aged balsamic vinegar, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Shred the beets in a food processor fitted with a disc for medium shredding or fine julienne.

Place a nonstick wok or large, deep nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add the oil. When the oil is hot, add the shallots and garlic. Cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Add the beets and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring and tossing, 3 to 5 minutes, until the beets have given up their water and are crisp-tender, or longer to desired doneness. Transfer to a serving dish. Stir in 2 teaspoons of the vinegar and sprinkle with the chives. Taste and add more vinegar, and additional oil, if desired. Serve immediately.Enjoy!
