Our CSA goes through the winter, so we’ve been enjoying fresh veggies as usual the last few months. There is less variety, however, and one item that has been in the boxes every time for the last 3-4 months has been beets. We have eaten more beets in the last year than I am sure I have eaten in the entire rest of my life. But we really like them, so it’s okay!
Beet preparation tip: using a black cutting board means no more staining! Here’s a nice pile of chopped beets, and the cutting board doesn’t look like part of a crime scene.
Here’s the finished dish – roasted beets on quinoa with a lemon balsamic vinaigrette.
