  • 2 pounds beets, peeled and cut into 1-inch-wide wedges

Pomegranate and Maple-Glazed Beets

Laurie Gauguin | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 8 people

Sweet, earthy beets and tart-sweet pomegranate juice make an impressive, healthy, and beautiful pairing. For best flavor, prepare the dish a few hours ahead, or up to one day in advance. Gently reheat in a saucepan.

  1. Put beets into a medium saucepan; cover with salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer until tender, about 25 min-utes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Pour pomegranate juice and maple syrup into saucepan; bring to a simmer. In a small bowl, stir cornstarch and water until smooth. Gradually pour into saucepan, whisking to incorporate. Simmer for 1 minute, then add beets and heat through. Serve, sprinkled with pomegranate seeds.
