Solar Beets with Horseradish

New Sun Oven

Before using the Sun Oven I never cooked beets. Now they’re one of my favorite vegetables.

Sun Oven Braised Beets


6 medium beets, peeled and quartered

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons water

1/4 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon prepared horseradish

1 tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped


Set Sun Oven out to preheat.

In a large pot, combine the beets, sugar, salt, pepper, vinegar, and water. Cover and transfer to the Sun Oven. Cook until the beets are tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Combine the sour cream and horseradish in a small bowl. Toss with the beets. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with the parsley.

6 to 8 servings.
