Roasted beets are amazing. I just stick them on a cookie sheet with olive oil and salt and roast them until they are soft. It's like eating candy. I also really like pickled beets.

Jealous of the lettuce and tomato. I haven't even planted my tomato plants yet. :(

As Geschicht said, roasted beets are really good. Cut of the roots, scrub well and trim any hairy bots, but don't bother peeling. Toss well with salt and pepper and some olive oil and bake until a skewer goes through easily. You can eat them as is, or you can wait till they are cold, then cube them and toss with scallions, loads of parsley, some garlic, balsamico and olive oil. Top with toasted pine nuts or hazelnuts and/or some kind of white cheese, like feta or fresh goat cheese.

Thanks sav, those look great!

And, I'm jealous of the garden production, while everything is green and blooming from all the rain, the garden is behind this year.

The ladies at the farmer's market swear by roasting it.  Ask the vendors selling it.  Obviously it's in their best interests to know super yummy ways to prepare them :)

Me, too.  I only just planted my basil and parsley for the year.

I agree.  But I peel beets.  Unless they're tiny baby beets.
