Serves 6.


    Beet Yogurt Muesli Bowl

    Time to take sugary boxed cereals off your morning kitchen playlist; instead, rise and dine on this fetching bowl of good nutrition. The beet purée is deliciously sweet and pairs perfectly with velvety Greek yogurt and crunchy skillet muesli.


    Hot stuff

    Roasting beets in the oven heightens their natural sweetness, making it an ideal way to prepare them for this purée. Alternatively, however, you can place beets in a steamer basket set over 2 in (5 cm) of water and steam until fork tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
