Surprisingly, I am plowing through my February goals and it is only the 13th. Trust me, I am as shocked as you are. I believe that is a sign that I need bigger goals.
Our CSA brought us 4 beets in our most recent delivery. We don't eat beets very often, and I've never cooked with them at home. I refuse to let delicious, local, organic produce go to waste, so I put roasting beets on my goal list for the month.
To be perfectly frank, I'm not a hundred percent sold on beets [please don't hate me if you're a beet farmer or Dwight Schrute]. I don't mind them, but since I so infrequently eat them, I imagine a bit of the taste is acquired.
Either way, we came, we ate and we conquered. I even got Vivi to eat a few [and the clouds parted and the angels sang].
I followed Martha's recipe for basic roasted beets.
After they cooled, I peeled and diced them and mixed them with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Then I topped them with goat cheese and walnuts.
Simple, easy and enough pink beet juice to stain my fingers for a week.
Eat on, my friends. Eat on.
