Happy Halloween! Since I already did the candy thing and the caramel apple thing, I decided to feature one of the truly most Halloween-ish foods out there: beets! (Slice a beet, get the knife and your hands all red-stained and you will get the picture.)
So, in honor of October, Halloween and all things spooky, today's post is a tribute to beets. Two recipes for you today + I have a quick Beets 101 to help inspire you to want to serve up this dark and moody vegetable. I get it. I wasn't always a beet lover at all. But once I learned how to use beets in a variety of ways, I learned to love them. My fave beet recipes: raw shredded on salads, juiced raw, roasted beets, beet chips and now beet dip!
BONUS: Beets are quite a HEALTHY food guys! (details ahead)
Two Beet Recipes. First up, recipe #1 is an easy recipe for turning rock-hard, raw beets into sweet, tender, seasoned perfection: my Maple Pepper Beets. Then recipe #2 is a sweet beet dip: Beet Walnut Pate. It is a savory-sweet dip that is a perky beet pink and delicious served with veggie sticks, crackers, chips or spread over top toast. Grab some beets are lets get our hands all pink and messy!..
