Spiralized Beets with Balsamic-Chive Dressing

For the longest time, I really only ate beet noodles with goat cheese and toasted nuts. I just didn’t know what else I could do with them.

Since they’re messy, they can get ugly pretty quickly, so they’re tough to toss in a dish.

BUT, I didn’t want to wrap them in foil and wait 45 minutes for them to roast – I wanted a quick and easy way to prepare them as a side.

Spiralized Beets with Balsamic-Chive Dressing

And thus, this recipe was born – it’s going to become your easy, go-to spiralized beet side dish. It literally goes with everything.

If you want to make this into something more substantial (like a full blown meal), you could toss in some quinoa, finely chopped spinach, and some cheese, toasted nuts, or roasted veggies, just use a little extra dressing (so maybe double the dressing when you make this dish.)

And don’t be intimidated by spiralizing beets – just wear gloves OR immediately wash your hands with soap and water after spiralizing (and your Inspiralizer). I like to take it a step further and also scrub my hands with warm water and table salt – that seems to help get some little stains out too.

However you enjoy these beets, I hope you do!

I love beets. It is always fun to see another way to eat them.
Shannon says:
Beets are a favorite of mine. I love adding balsamic reduction, frozen orange juice and a bit of garlic in there. Its an amazing combination.
Mary K. says:
Are the beets cooked first or raw? Looks delicious.
Ali Maffucci says:
Follow the recipe exactly as it says - if the beets were cooked, it would indicate such! Beets are raw when they're spiralized, always (unless otherwise noted.)
Adrienne says:
This recipe couldn't have arrived at a better time. Someone gave me two beets and I had no idea what to do with them. I brought both of your cookbooks to work today so I could look at them so I could pick a recipe. I think this might be the winner for now and then I'll have to go buy some more beets!
Kathy says:
Ali: This recipe looks really good. I like beets a lot, and unfortunately, can no longer eat them, but the dressing sounds really good, and maybe it would work with jicama or daikon or a mix of both. Thanks for the recipe!
One more vote for this food blog. Lots of inputs on home made food and healthy food.
Joan Westaway says:
Just ordered organic beetroot on a whim... and then I see this! I've often fine-julienne shredded my beetroot to decorate a salad, but this lights something within! Have all the ingredients! So impatient for delivery! Intrigued with the oven-roasting! Sounds good! (Note: leave the honey out for Whole30)
Diana Lopes says:
I've never thought about eating beets like this before, and I must say I'm intrigued. I'm super curious to try it. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
Helenea says:
I love beets anyway I can eat them. I just purchased some spiralled beets for an awesome price and I came across your recipe. I am sure they taste great. Thank you for sharing.
Carly Glazer says:

This is pretty good but attached the photo of my beets ready for my favorite - Spiralized beets and Feta Mediterranean Skillet Bake.

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it

I love to have a few mini loafs in the freezer to easily defrost for breakfasts or snacks for the kids, but also for myself - slathered with nut butter and a little sprinkle of hemp seeds 🥜 or some honey, butter and cinnamon for the kids 🍯🧈  ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! happy monday! 🙌🏼⁣

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...
