You ever wonder what to do with these weird veggies? I never ate beets growing up. The only time I ever saw them was on a salad bar. I would always try them (they looked so cool and colorful) but never liked them. Even now when I see them in the market they kinda gross me out. The long part looks like a rat's tail to me!
When my sister was in town she taught me a fun recipe with beets that I love, so I'm going to share it with you :) I actually eat this for fun!!
I have no actual recipe. But basically I pealed and cut in half 5 beets. (if you don't want your nice cutting board to be permanently pink, cut them on a plate or something else :)) Then I steamed them (you could boil them too if you wanted). Then I got out my mini food-processor. I put a little less than 2 of the beets in the food processor with a small handful of cashews, a tablespoon of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and blend it up. I repeated that until all the beets were beat :) haha!
It makes a really easy and yummy dip you can eat with chips or spread on bread or crackers. It's really healthy too!! Not to mention that it's HOT PINK! How many things that you eat are naturally hot pink? haha! It's a terrible picture, but you can see what it looks like below :)
And just for fun... Where's Waldo? :)
