Microwaved Beets

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 212


1 pound fresh beet
salt and ground black pepper to taste


Cut the leaves and stems from the beets, leaving about an inch of stems. Wash the beets to remove any loose surface dirt leave wet. Snap off the "tail." Place in a microwave-safe bowl, season with salt and pepper, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave at full power until the beets are tender, 12 to 15 minutes.

When the beets are cooked, run them under cold water just until they are cool enough to handle. Cut the stem end from each beet, slip off the skin, and cut as desired. Serve at once as a side dish, or in any recipe calling for roasted beets. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
