Looking for a new way to get your kiddies to eat their vegetables? Make beets better with Juicy Juice® Orange Tangerine 100% Juice Sauce! It’s great to dress up a salad or on its own! Everything you need to create this easy recipe is below.
Gather your Ingredients. You will need:
1 cup Juicy Juice® Orange Tangerine 100% Juice
8 whole fresh beets
¼ cup of sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
Dash of pepper (to taste)
1 medium navel orange, halved and sliced (optional)
½ teaspoon of grated orange peel
3 tablespoons sunflower seeds
4 cups of arugula
Place beets in a large saucepan; cover with 1 cup Juicy Juice® Orange Tangerine 100% Juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 25-30 minutes or until tender. Drain and cool slightly. Peel and slice; place in a serving bowl and keep warm. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and pepper; stir in Juicy Juice® Orange Tangerine juice until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in orange slices if desired and peel. Pour over beets and add accompanying greens of your choice for a salad kids can get into! We made ours with arugula and sunflower seeds. Makes 8 servings.
Note: A 15-ounce can of sliced beets may be substituted for the fresh beets. Drain the canned beets and omit the first step of the recipe.
