Full share this week….My favorite is on the bottom right! Beets, nutritious, versatile, tasty, and pretty! Beet greens can be eaten raw in a salad tossed with the other greens, or steamed lightly, or juiced.
Now the beets themselves….Raw, they can be grated into a salad or blended in a vegetable smoothie. Boiled then chilled, you can dice them and toss them in a salad (again) or marinade. Try Balsamic Marinated Beets from Epicurious. Boiled and hot you can serve them simply as a vegetable, they are pretty, sweet and tasty. Roasted, you can toss them with other root vegetables in some olive oil and pop them in the oven until they are tender, sprinkle a little salt and pepper, add some goat cheese and serve on a bed of greens and you have a beautiful roasted vegetable salad!
