Like most things in life, beets are simply better with butter and cheese. These easy sous vide buttered beets with orange, pistachios and Parmigiano-Reggiano make a fantastic side dish or salad for the Summer. The best part? Cooking beets to the perfect consistency is easy with the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker.
