Serve with rice. This is not a dish to eat by itself, it should be mixed with rice.
My preferred diet is vegetarian, and I love to show meat eaters how satisfying eating vegetarian can be. I recall once serving this dish, paired with a lentil dish and rice to my brother and his wife. They were shocked at how the beets were transformed in this dish, different from their typical beet dishes. It felt good to turn them on to a new beat. They prodded me with questions about how to make the dish themselves. It is now a regular recipe of theirs, and I hope it becomes one for you too.
