We're trying one new veggie each week. This is the first time I ever bought raw beets, I tried this recipe, WOW!!! I didn't have grapefruit or lemon juice, so I subbed orange juice and key lime juice. My husband (who was very skeptical at first) LOVED this!!! We will repeat it!

Really yummy - I only kept it covered for the first 15 mins and uncovered for the 45 mins to get some carmelization. Yum. Used orange juice instead of grapefruit (didn't have it on hand). Really really good. Could top with crumbled feta or goat chz - even better!
