Beet Pancakes with Yogurt Dill Sauce

 
Beet Pancakes with Yogurt Dill Sauce
407

This is an excellent way to prepare beets. Reminiscent of potato pancakes, shredded beets and carrots are mixed with eggs and then cooked in a skillet until crispy on the outside. The earthy sweetness of the beets go perfectly with the creamy yogurt dill sauce, simply delicious!
