How to Chop Beets – The Quick & Easy Way

I am often asked how to chop beets because I love including them on our menus, especially roasted and tossed into a salad.  But their sphere-like shape, which can often be quite irregular, tends to slip and slide all over the cutting board, right?! This can prove to be quite a messy experience. (I always wear a dark shirt when chopping purple beets – ha!).

Today, I am sharing a quick video that shows you how to chop beets – the quick & easy way. Tip #1 – as I always say with anything you are chopping, start with a flat surface. Watch the video below for more tips!

What is your favorite way to prepare beets? Are you a fan of roasted beets or enjoy  them pickled? Have you tried beet ice cream or put them in a chocolate cake? Let me know in the comments below or give us a shout out on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Find us in all 3 places as @prepdish!
