Grilled Golden Beets

I’ve roasted good ole purple beets a few times, either in the oven or on a grill or even on a smoker and they came out great. When I came across golden beets, which I’d never had before, I had to grab a few to see how they would hold up on the grill. The grilled golden beets weren’t quite as sweet as their purple cousins, but they are a lot less earthy, which I really enjoyed a lot.

I opted for a very simple cooking method. Just oil, salt and pepper and onto the grill. I didn’t want anything to mask the great flavors of the beets.

I make a fantastic roasted beet salad that has Feta and reduced balsamic vinegar, among other things. It’s a big favorite of ours. Next time I find some more golden beets I’ll make that same salad using the golden beets instead.

Also try my grilled radishes.
