Nature's sweetest vegetable, ruby-hued beets are always at home in salads and sides, and make a tantalizing addition to savory main courses—try roasting beets with other hardy root vegetables when cooking squab or pheasant. Save the tender greens for a delicately flavored accompaniment—slice finely and sauté with olive oil, onion, and garlic.
