I like to cut the beets into tiny cubes and use the fine shredding blade of my food processor to approximate the tiny pieces of beet from Café Sofra. Large cubes would have shredded into long pieces like coleslaw. You can also just cut peeled, cooked beet into small cubes for more texture and not shred. I have also shredded the cooked beet in a small hand held cheese grater, like the French moulinex grater or Zylis cheese grater. I have tried peeling the raw beet, cutting it into small cubes with a fluted cutter and pan frying. It still took over 30 minutes to gently pan fry with some oil.
