Roasted Beets with Pine Nuts, Dill, and Red Onion

    I used a mix of golden and purple beets. The purple bled all over the golden and turned them a sort of flourescent orange - quite entertaining! Great suggestion on caramelizing the onions. This is my favorite beet recipe of the five or six I've tried so far (other than beet soup, that is).

    This was fabulous! After roasting but before skinning, I cooled the beets in a bowl of ice water (they were taking forever to cool); plus sauted the red onion. Everyone loved this dish. As an experiment I also tried this with canned beets - DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME! There is a world of difference in taste - stick to the real deal.

    Had golden beets when I was in Portland a couple years ago, and I finally found a source for them in my area (at Whole Foods). This was fantastic and gourmet-like in its presentation, huge hit. Served with grilled lemon oregano chicken breasts, mango salsa couscous, and chocolate mousse for dessert.
