Just Beet It!

Entry posted by Rowena · - 982 views

So what kid in their right mind is adventurous enough to WANT to try a beet, and if they do, what kid actually likes the weird looking root veggie? Not many are that brave, and I certainly wasn't. I was one of those kids who HATED textures and VERY picky about flavor. If it was bland, I didn't eat it, and if I didn't like the texture, GET IT AWAY! (Not much has changed in that regard to be honest - though I *HAVE* expanded my horizons by quite a bit.) As a kid, I ate 3 things... [b]Potatoes[/b], and a lot of them... [i][size=3](What? I was born in Idaho and the Idahoan who doesn't like potatoes should be SHUNNED... joking aside, potatoes was a staple and you NEVER put a potato in front of me and falsely claim its from Idaho. I WILL eat you if its not, because I KNOW the taste of an Idaho Potato like I know the back of my hand)[/size][/i] [b]Pizza[/b], and [b]spaghetti.[/b]

So last night, I bought six beets because the nomato sauce recipes I found all called for beets. I had spent all weekend convincing myself, 'I can do this... I can eat beets. They won't be bad.' Well, six carrots, 3 celery stalks, some water, and a single beet later, (and don't forget the purple stained clothes) I was ranting and raving how good my sauce was. The carrots definitely masked the beet's flavor, but even still there was still a strong taste and smell of beets... Who knew? I can eat beets! I beat the beet!

Now, cut those beets into chunks, along with chunks of carrot and red potatoes, put them on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with herbs.  Roast for about 40 minutes or until tender.  Yum!  

 

By the way, Costco has fresh pre-cooked beets now.  No mess! I haven't tried them yet but my GF Aunt has and she liked them (but she's a beet nut!)  Using them  would make it easier/faster when you're making a sauce.

I'm sooo glad it helped you too!  I loved it too, and yeah even my hubby loved that veggie mix and said he would have been okay without me piling meat on top.

But yeah the spaghetti was amazing...
