Beets Infused with Garlic and Olive Oil

Course: Side
Cuisine: Middle Eastern
Servings: 4



  • Scrub the beets clean, then cover with water and boil on a stovetop or zapped in a microwave until a fork stuck in the middle slides in effortlessly. (I don't skin my beets). Slice the beets thinly and cut each slice into quarters, then eighths.Pour the oil-garlic-lemon mixture over the beets and toss well.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, garlic, lemon and salt.
  • Pour over the beets and mix. Set aside for about half an hour for the flavors to infuse. Serve at room temperature.
  • Delicious.
