What a vegetable! Their stronger characteristics are: intense colors and hearty flavor. I cook them in two ways; boiling or baking – both simple and with great result.
Beets are an awesome vegetable for Southern California; if you live in a place where the weather is always warm then you need to come up with ideas to make winter foods in a fresh way – and a beets salad is the perfect answer.
Important, for me, is to dress them with good quality balsamic vinegar and spice them up with a little bit of fresh herbs. Beets are very versatile but only a recent addition to my cooking so I can’t wait to explore all the variety of dishes that they can bring to the table.
