Orange Kissed Beets

Although the recipe called for canned beets, I had the real thing, so I roasted the beets and sliced them and replaced the canned variety.  This is an easy recipe and it cooked quickly.  It makes a flavorful side dish and I served it with chicken, green beans and a salad.  That made for a very nice dinner.

  1. The name of this recipe just makes you want to prepare it. I am sure it was so much better with fresh beets. I rarely make beets, but I would like to try this as it looks good.

I love when your leave comments. Make my day sunny and share a few words or more.
