I also have made a batch of these beets, let it cool down, and then added it as a topping to a big salad.
Shaved and Buttered Golden Beets
(You can use any type of beet – I have used golden, classic red, and chiogga and they all come out wonderful.
1 large beet (good for two people)
1 scallion or spring onion or shallot*, sliced
1-2 tbsp butter (use grassfed organic butter for proper balance of essential fats)
salt and pepper to taste
*I really recommend using a shallot for this recipe of you can find one. It makes it absolutely delectable and perfect!
Heat butter and sauté scallion or shallot until just getting soft. Add shredded beets and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until beets are nicely cooked down and soft. Taste and add more salt/pepper if necessary. And Enjoy! You will – it is addictively good!
