Typically grown for its round or cylindrical taproot, the leaves of the beet are also edible. Leaves resemble Swiss chard on a smaller scale and are good sautéed. The taproot, or beet, ranges in color from deep red to gold, orange, or white and red striped. The beet has a delicious, earthy flavor with a touch of sweetness to it when roasted.
