3 Tbsp. unsalted butter 1 ½ lbs beets, peeled and coarsely grated (3 ½ c) ¼ tsp. finely grated lime zest Optional garnish: finely chopped scallion greens 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice, or to taste ¾ tsp. salt ¼ tsp. pepper
Melt two Tbsp. butter in a 10 - 12" heavy skillet over moderately high heat. Add beets and lime zest and cook, stirring, until beets are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and stir in remaining Tbsp. butter, lime juice, salt and pepper. Serve garnished with scallion greens, if desired.
*it'd be definitely worth trying this with lemon, orange, or tangerines in place of the lime!
