Grilled Orange Beets

grilled orange beetsI had 3 small beets left after making muffins, so I decided to cook them on the grill with our chicken tonight. Three small beets were not a huge amount, but I figured it would be enough for the two of us. I wish we could have had more, because these were really good!

Grilled Orange Beets
Recipe type: Side
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
  • 3 small to medium beets, diced into ½ inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ orange, zested and juiced
  1. Preheat grill to medium. Tear off a 3 foot piece of heavy duty wide aluminum foil. Fold in half. Spray one side with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Place diced beets on foil, pour oil over. Drugstore wrap the foil around the beets. Place on grill for 20 minutes, turning half way through.
  3. After removing from the grill, top cooked beets with orange zest and orange juice. Stir to combine.

It was dark and below freezing when I turned off the grill. Does winter weather prevent you from cooking outdoors?

Happy eating!
