This recipe may seem like a strange mix, but my boyfriend called me a 'genius' when I served this as a side. I made the yogurt myself in my new yogurt-maker (hence the experimentation with strange yogurt uses) and cooked the foil-wrapped beets in a slow-cooker on low overnight. The outcome was fun, interesting, and packed with flavor.

Excellent! Very easy to make, and a great contrast of flavors between the cilantro and the toasted walnuts. Yum!
