Grilled Beets with Tahini

Grilled Beets (because it’s too warm out to roast them in the oven and boiling them is a pain) + Tahini (to add a level of richness that contrasts with the sweetness of the beets) = a hearty summer dish!


  • 4 Beets – peeled and sliced into round of about 1/4″ thickness
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ancho Chili Powder
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • 1/4 cup Tahini
  • Optional – Serve on a bed of fresh Greens


  1. Pre-heat your grill.
  2. Toss your beets in the olive oil and sprinkle liberally with the sea salt and ancho chili powder.
  3. Grill your Beets:
    1. I grilled my beets over a medium flame (the temperature bouncing between 350 – 400).
    2. 10 – 15 minute each side.
  4. Set your beets aside to cool.  I served my beets cold.
  5. Squeeze the lemon juice over the beets.
  6. Taste test to see if you need to add a little more salt.
  7. Finally, drizzle the tahini over the beets and serve.
