AA Oval Roasting Pan

Since discovering solar cooking, beets have become one of my favorite vegetables and this is one of my favorite ways to enjoy them.

Sun Oven Braised Beets with Horseradish Sauce


6 medium beets, peeled and quartered

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons water

1/4 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon prepared horseradish


Set Sun Oven out to preheat.

In a large pot, stir together the beets, sugar, salt, pepper, vinegar, and water.

Cover and cook in the Sun Oven until the beets are tender, 2 to 3 hours. Remove the pot from the Sun Oven and let cool slightly.

In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream and horseradish. Toss the sour cream mixture with the beets in the pot. Transfer to a serving dish.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
