Yakityak's "A Taste of India" Crockpot Beets

Place everything in the crockpot, stir well. Cover and cook on low for 6+ hours.

NB: I use golden beets because my family and I prefer to have the beets peeled before cooking. This is much less of a hassle when the beets are yellow as they do not stain. But there is no reason you cannot use red beets or unpeeled beets of any color.

Also, the beet greens can be saved and braised. There are many options, but here's one you can try if you don't have your own ideas:

Braised Beet Greens

Heat the olive oil on medium heat in a large skillet with lid. Add the garlic and stir for 1 minute. Add the salt and greens, stir until coated and mostly cover with the lid. Keep an eye on the greens, when they are wilted and just tender enough, remove from heat - usually between 3 - 5 minutes. Remove from heat, toss with the lemon juice and serve.
