I believe it. I'll be sure to add as much beet to my diet as I have kale. And quinoa. And whatever other nasty crap they've been trying to make me eat.
 
2018-02-07 03:23:22 PM  
Yeah, beets are great. I've been eating them for years.

Also, isn't Kale the Kale of the 21st century?

This has to be false, because Pizza Hut never garnished their salad bar with beets.

Just double down, and go straight to brussel sprouts or lima beans.

So the "beets are the new kale" story is in the Main tab but the "mushrooms are the new kale" story is in the Geek tab. Mods, you so crazy.

I like beets, but only if they are peeled, cut up into bites, and roasted. And pickled beets are OK.

Mom made a mean pickled beet. Dad grossed me out when he'd eat the greens. After 20 plus years I might(should) try them again. My fear is their still isn't butter/salt and pepper to make it work.

odinsposse: they just take forever to cook


Roasted is fast.
Raw is best

I cut beets up like matchsticks and make a salad. For example:
Beets
Carrots
Spinach
Feta


Lots of different combos work well, this is must a picture I Googled up

by less than a minute was i tardy in my celebration of the peeled beet - roasted sounds good
& pickled beets kick ass... with some baby corns ....mmm

did i mention how they make your pee kinda red?
they also make me poo like crazy
 
2018-02-07 03:46:46 PM  
I have found that there is no middle ground with beets....Everyone either really likes them, or hates them with a passion.

Personally I love em, and I feel wired after I eat them.

Roasted beets, add goat cheese and grapefruit.  You're welcome.
 
2018-02-07 03:51:59 PM  
I've always thought that cooked beets taste an awful lot like sweet corn.  They're wonderful roasted, pan braised, or pickled.  If you're worried about the "am I dying?" effect, keep an eye out for golden beets.  Same flavor, less physiological dread.

It's somewhat less fun when you're old like me and forget that you had beets with dinner, then eight hours later you get up to take a whiz in the middle of the night and HOLY SHIAT HON, CALL THE DOCTOR.

They really shine on a salad with feta or blue cheese and candied walnuts. I prefer a balsamic vinaigrette with this salad.
 
2018-02-07 03:54:00 PM  
The best beet recipe:
Go to the garden an pull up a dozen or so beets.
Bring them in and cut the greens off.
Throw away the beet and steam the greens.
Add a little butter or sprinkle of vinegar.
Delicious.

I was also stuck on this. Kale got big in like 2008 at the earliest. TFA is either trying to uh...blaze new trails in the world of hyperbole or has no idea how centuries work.

Does the article used the phrase 'super food'? Because that's usually the point I 'stopped reading there'.

Wow. They used it as one word. It's even worse than I expected.

Judging by the size of the guy in the video it's the first time he ever saw a beet.

I used to be a beet reporter for a regional agriculture publication, so I'm really getting a kick...
