I never intentionally ate a beet, I admit it and even blogged about it. My wife loves them so it was only a matter of time. I was surprised that I actually liked them and we’ve grilled them 100's of times since. They add great color to the grill and your plate and I understand they are very good for you… Beets being a root vegetable like potatoes grill in a similar manner only beets have more natural sugar so they caramelize very nicely. We like ours with some tangy goat cheese crumbled over top.
