Roasted Beets and Marinated Artichokes over Brown Rice

Sometimes dinner or a dish for dinner can be as simple as selecting a few items from the fridge. Recently I combined some leftover roasted beets, marinated artichokes, onion and garlic in a skillet. It accompanied other dinner items, including brown rice. I’m always amazed with how well my son eats roasted beets… making this a great side option if other dinner options are a bust.

Notes: There are many recipes for roasting beets and I know I’ve posted the ‘How To’ for it many times. Our favorite method is to let them roast uncovered until they are slightly chewy and very sweet. Much of it’s genuine earthy-root flavor is masked by natural beet sugar with this roasting method. The smaller your beet cuts, the faster they will roast.
