All of the grocery stores in Amsterdam have cooked beets available for purchase. I actually love beets, but I almost never make them at home because they take agessss to cook. So having them ready to use at the grocery store is a huge bonus, and it means I can incorporate them into more of my meals 🙂 Simple salads are probably my go-to way to use beets. They add a ton of flavour, and they make a salad seem more substantial. This salad took me all of minutes to make, and even less time to eat 😉 Just toasted some walnuts, sliced up the beets, added a hard boiled egg and voila! Healthy easy meal. If you are on the fence about beets, try to give them a second chance. They are nutrient dense and very tasty, definitely a new staple in my diet.
