Odessa beets

  • 5-6 medium beets
  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 8-10 plums, pitted and thinly sliced
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup finely chopped pineapple (fresh or canned)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wrap beets in foil and bake until very tender about 45 minutes. Rinse under cold water as you rub off the skins. Trim the ends and coarsely grate. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add all remaining ingredients and mix well. Chill until ready to serve. Serves 6. Recipe from The Moosewood Cookbook.
