This sauteed beets recipe is really simple and easy to cook. All you need are a skillet, beets and other ingredients for adding flavour. During the weekend, I wanted to cook something easy and healthy to enjoy with a light meal. I had some beets and carrots in the fridge. So, I decided to make a dish with sautéed beets and carrots over a skillet. Then I saw a sweet corn from last week which I couldn’t cook for the kid. I know corns are best when it is cooked over a skillet. So, the corn kernels too included in our sautéed beets and carrot dish.
I usually like quick cooking methods than spending more time in the kitchen. This is why I like pan sautéed or pan roasted recipes than oven baked recipes.
For my skillet cooking I use both non-stick pans and cast iron skillets. I like cast iron skillet due to its ability of heating up quickly. However I found that my cast iron skillet has some signs of scratches. According to KitchenVoice , it is difficult to maintain cast iron cookware for a longer period. To maintain the non-stick surface of the cast iron cook ware, it is necessary to well season with oil before cooking over the pan. Well, cast iron skillets are bit expensive. So the scratches on my skillet didn’t make me happy. But, I learned the lesson of seasoning well before cooking over it in order to expand the life of my skillet.
With that lesson learned, I started coking this quick Beet Sautee expecting to enjoy a flavourful salad with mix of tastes .It came out delicious and colourful.
Here is the recipe for easy and quick sauteed beets with carrot and Corn over skillet. Hope you will enjoy making this dish in a relaxing evening or in a weekend.
