Barbecue Balsamic Beets For Detox And Vitamin C

Written by: Lindsay Sibson

Looking for a zesty and healthy side dish for your next barbeque?

These grilled balsamic beets are a simple and delicious dish to accompany any meal!

What Are Beets?

Beet (beetroot) is the taproot portion of the beet plant and is in the same plant family as Swiss chard.

Raw beets have a crunchy texture that turns buttery and soft when cooked. The leaves can also be used in various cuisines and have a bitter taste similar to chard.

Both parts of the beetroot are incredibly nutritious and have a high concentration of vitamins, minerals and nutrients, which is why it is included in Organifi Green Juice powder.

How To Make Barbeque Balsamic Beets

Ingredients:

  • 4  large beets, sliced into ½ inch thick chips
  • ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar, + 1 tbsp
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp rosemary
  • ¼ tsp basil
  • ¼ tsp sage
  • ¼ tsp sage

The flavor of these beets can easily be changed and customized by adding a dash of your favorite spices.

I love a bit of heat so I like to add a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes!  

Instructions:

1. Prepare your beets by washing/scrubbing and peeling them if desired.
    • Slice into ¼-½ inch thick slices.
    2. In a dish, whisk together the vinegar and spices (reserve 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar).
      • Place the beets in the dish and allow to marinate for 1 hour.
      3. Wrap the beets in foil, drizzle in the extra marinade and seal well.
        • Place on the BBQ grill for 20-25 minutes until soft.
        4. Remove the beets from the foil and place directly on the grill for 1-2 minutes.
          • Lightly pour on the extra vinegar before serving.
