The racy red beet!

The topic of the day have to be the sweet and sexy red beet. A most versatile root that I could eat for weeks straight without repeating a single recipe. Here are some luscious ones...


Boiled:

Oil, Dijon mustard.
Butter and freshly grated horseradish.
Lemon oil and sea salt
Cold with apple and red onion
Coconut and raisin
Wasabi and sesame seeds

Soup:

Orange, ginger and all spice
Bacon and chanterelles
Borsjtj

Roasted:

Feta cheese and thyme
Chevre cheese, honey and toasted pine nuts
Bacon and capers
Garlic and arugula
Sesame oil, sesame seeds and sea salt

Raw:
Grated with Parmesan and balsamic vinager

Pickled:
Orange peel, all spice, cloves
Jalapeno pepper


I'm not much of a baker, but grated red beet in brownies and other chocolate cakes tastes like yum!!
I also have a recipe for my Grannies Christmas salad, I'll save it for December, there has been no Christmas with out it, EVER! So stay tuned....
