Beets have lots of flavor and nutrition. It is high in fiber and several vitamins and minerals. However, over the years, I didn't care for the mess. It would stain everything it touched including my hands and the cutting board. But recently I decided to try it in my KitchenAid Spiralizer, and I couldn't believe it. It worked great, cleaned off the spiralizer easily, and there was no staining either because I placed the noodles in a stainless steel bowl.

My husband wouldn't eat this, but you're starting to convince me that I should get a spiralizer! Do you know if the handheld ones are any good?
The handheld ones work ideal for softer squashes like zucchini. I still have my handheld one, and it works great. I never tried root veggies with this one, though. I think it would be too difficult for my wrists. The freestanding style would probably work better for root vegetables.

This looks like a nice and easy healthy recipe! I always am looking for more ways to incorporate beets:) Thanks for sharing this!!
I love this combination of healthy!! Beets and goat cheese go so well together. Now I just need a spiralizer. Until then I'll use diced or sliced beets:-)
I wish I wasn't lactose intolerant because this looks super yummy! 🙂
That looks amazing. Beets are one of my favorite vegetables. I don't have a spiralizer. However, I do know someone who would lend one to me for a day or two.
