Sauteed Beets with Tomatoes

If in this cold season you are looking for delicious ideas for side dishes or salads, simple and from cheap and handy products, this dish is perfect. I was a bit skeptical at first, but I was very surprised by the sweet taste of the beets, the silky texture and the aroma very suitable with the other ingredients.

My husband looked a little skeptical when I was cooking it but at the table he was also surprised, Sofia too, she ate without any comment, and we usually have problems with vegetables.

Besides the sauteed carrots, I think it will already be one of our favorite side dishes.
