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.
  • 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.
  • Are the beets cooked first or raw? Looks delicious.
    • 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.)
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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)
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • This is pretty good but attached the photo of my beets ready for my favorite - Spiralized beets and Feta Mediterranean Skillet Bake.
    • WOW! This is incredible! Thank you so much for sharing!
  • I am trying to buy some spirilized beets. I really wants some. I watch N.E. Let’s Eat and they eat the spirilized red beets. And they have spirilized white radish. I want to order both. Please tell me how.
    • We suggest buying a spiralizer! As long as your spiralizer has good suction and you're able to put a lot of good pressure on the side handle, spiralizing beets should be easy!
