Shredded Beets with Non-Fat Yoghurt

Submitted by: BABYSTARGIRL99

Introduction

This is similar to a borscht, but is super quick and easy, much lower in fat, and somewhat milder for those who are not so keen on beets. This is similar to a borscht, but is super quick and easy, much lower in fat, and somewhat milder for those who are not so keen on beets.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    Beets, Shredded, 2 cups
    Plain Non-Fat Yoghurt, 1/2 to 3/4 cup
    Red Wine or Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 cup
    Water, 2 Tbsp to 1/4 cup

Tips

Wear rubber gloves when peeling and shredding beets, since red beet juice is very hard to get out of skin. Same goes for clothes; if preparing for guess, change AFTER you cook.


Directions

Wash the beets, and peel with a small knife or vegetable peeler. Shred them using a cheese shredder.

Put the beets in a wide, low sauce pan or frying pan and add the water -- just enough to cover the bottom of the pan by about an 1/8 of an inch. Cover the pan with a sauce pan lid and let beets steam 10-12 minutes, or until tender but not mushy. Add water if it boils off. Do not let the beets burn.

When beets are tender and excess water has cooked off, turn off heat and add the yoghurt, adjusting amount so that mixture is evenly coated but not too gloopy. Serve warm.

Serving Size: Makes 6 1/3 cup servings

  • This is awesome- I'm going to try it next with pineapple tidbits. One question where/ when do you add the Red Wine or Apple Cider Vinegar? - 10/4/12
