If you haven’t guessed, I am obsessed with beets! Perhaps it is my Eastern European heritage? Whatever it is, I can’t get enough.
Most people have never tried a fresh roasted beet and I am here to tell you that it is the bomb! Do not be discouraged by the canned beets your parents forced you to eat. This is a whole new dimension and every skeptic I have introduced thus far is raving. One of my clients calls it “the beef of the vegetable world”. The flavor is nutty, rich and sweet. The health benefits are numerous.
3-4 Roasted Beets, cut into bite size pieces
1 Bunch beet greens, chopped (stems and greens separated)
1 Onion, chopped
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1 Tbl Balsamic vinegar
2 Tbl Olive oil
Salt and pepper
-Sautee onion and beet green stems in olive oil until softened (5-7 minutes). Seasoning with S&P. Add in beet greens until wilted.
-Toss with the beets, walnuts, balsamic and drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper.
-Top with crumbled goat cheese.
