You’ll find beets at some of the area farmers markets this week. Their season typically lasts through October, so while they’re around, try these suggestions from our Recipe Finder:

Stuffed Potatoes and Beets in Tamarind Sauce (Marvin Joseph/The Washington Post)

Red Beet Mojito, another unconventional take on the root vegetable.

Roasted Beet Salad, which might convert any beet skeptic with the help of a zesty vinaigrette and a little cheese.

Stuffed Potatoes and Beets in Tamarind Sauce, a make-ahead meal that calls for the beet greens as well.
