Simple Steamed Beets

This week our Spring CSA members receive their first round of beets, and what a bounty of beets it is! At distribution on Monday, plenty of folks had plans for this delicious root crop, but the most common question I received was this:

What am I supposed to do with these beets?

So we’re starting off simple, with my family’s favorite way to eat them: steamed al dente and topped with a sprinkling of finishing salt. The perfect veggie side dish.
