Grilled Beets with Pesto

Grilled Beets with Pesto

Grilled beets are a delicious and easy way to enjoy this nutritious root vegetable. They have a sweet and earthy flavor that pairs well with fresh and tangy pesto. You can use any kind of beets you like, such as red, golden, or chioggia. Just slice them thinly and grill them until they are tender and charred.

To make grilled beets, you will need:

  • 4 medium beets, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons of oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup of pesto (homemade or store-bought)
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)

To grill the beets, follow these steps:

  1. Preheat your grill to high heat. It should take about 15 minutes to get very hot.
  2. Toss the beet slices with oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange them in a single layer on the grill or in a grill basket (if the beets are small, they might fall through the grates). Grill for about 5 minutes per side or until they are cooked to your liking.
  3. Transfer the grilled beets to a platter and drizzle with pesto. Sprinkle with basil leaves if desired.
