Posted by Peggy on April 27, 2014

Recipe: Golden Beet and Orange Relish


  • 3 medium sized golden (or red) beets
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 large shallots, peeled and diced (1/2 cup)
  • Zest and juice from 1 orange
  • Knob of ginger, grated (1-2 tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander (ground from fresh seeds, if possible)


  1. Wearing plastic gloves, trim greens* and both ends, peel and grate. (You should have 4 packed cups of grated beets)
  2. Heat olive oil over medium-low heat, sauté shallots 4 minutes, stirring, then stir in orange zest, juice ginger, sugar, and vinegar. Stir in beets and cook an additional 6-8 minutes, or until your desired level of doneness, stirring in the coriander in the last couple of minutes.                                                                                                                             * The beet greens are marvelous sautéed in a bit of olive oil.
Yield: 2 1/4 cups Time: 45 minutes

*I used 2 tablespoons, but enjoy a pronounced ginger flavor.
