Glad I got my fridge cleaned out in time.

Okay…what would you make?

(Recipes involving beets would be appreciated…I’m not really a fan..)

  1. Wish I had a beet recipe to share, but I’ ve only made them once and I don’t think I cooked them correctly… it wasn’t too good.

    However, I love all the deliciousness that came in your CSA box- I’m so jealous!

    Sarah has a yummy looking butternut squash recipe:

    Mmm, I LOVE beets. I don’t have an recipes, though. Just roast them with a lot of olive oil and seasonings of your choice, wrapped in foil. It takes a while, like baking a potato. You can peel them pretty easily once they are cooked. If you can’t find any tasty uses for them, I would be willing to take them off your hands. πŸ˜‰

    I don’t have access to beets most of the time, so the only thing I’ve ever made with them myself is borsht. I would second the above idea and try roasting them simply with oil, salt, and pepper, and then finding uses for them after that. Salad, as a side, maybe in a sandwich, or chopped up and used as an omelet filling?

    I would absolutely recommend the ginger-coconut butternut squash soup I just made a few weeks back. It was fantastic! I know you aren’t a fan of coconut, but it does make for really awesome soups and curries, if you’re feeling adventurous.

      I definitely think that soup is on the menu for the butternut squash. Kinda dreading having to crack it open though…..even the delicata squash were kind of a challenge to get into…

      I’m afraid of making borsht because I would hate to have an entire pot of something I don’t want to eat. I keep trying to push my taste buds but I also think it’s important to respect them. If I can’t get it into it this time, I may just be giving Peter the rest of the beets….

  4. Roast the beets with just some olive oil, salt, pepper, thyme, and rosemary. If you roast some carrots and parsnips as well, the combination of the three is a nice little medley of root veggies.

    Enjoy your CSA box!

    sfgate.com has a great recipe for golden beet/creme fraiche soup. I’ve made it 2 times. Once with golden beets and once with red beets. When I made the red beet soup I also added a touch of homemade pesto.
    They are also great roasted and put in salads.
