Tomato braised beets

Tomato Braised Beets

Here's another Georgian recipe with a unique combination of ingredients...for us at least! It's good cold as it is hot. We especially like it as an appetizer or a side to grilled or roasted meat. Don't be surprised if you end up adding more salt and chile than necessary to even out the sweetness of the beets.


  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 tomatoes, chopped fine
  • 1 tsp fenugreek
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp coriander seed
  • Reshampatti pepper to taste
  • 3 large beets, cooked
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup dill or cilantro


  1. 1

    Put onions and oil in a pot on medium heat. Cook until golden. Add tomato paste and tomatoes. Cook for 5 more minutes.

  2. 2

    Meanwhile, grind spices. Peel and grate beets.

  3. 3

    Once tomatoes have dissolved into a sauce, add spices, grated beets and garlic to pot. Mix well and simmer for 5 minutes. Add salt and 3/4 of the dill. Simmer for another 2-3 minutes. Garnish with remaining dill.
