Beets are my favorite veggie to have in the kitchen for making meals. Yeah they are healthy and crap like that but they are more than just good for ya they are super fun. If you ever want a nice meal with a gothic twist then a nice red beet is the best.
I like boiling up some small beets and throwing them in some white vinegar, sugar (small amount), and salt to pickle them. I do the same for carrots and cabbage for like a day and then if I haven’t already chopped them up in the match sticks then I do that and it is the best salad I do for myself. When I am feeling like I need some more protein or to have a nice creamy item to off set the vinegary salad I will throw in some tofu.
Tonight I wanted to make a black bean soup but I was needing some greens to go with it so I had some beet tops and I chopped those and added it too the soup and it made the liquid blood red. It was so fun to eat along with being yummy and it’s the reason I am writing this.
Beets go really good with anything you would have feta like in a greek salad I think and just have this nice blending quality but still retain their own flavor. Beets play well with others with their flavor but if they are a red beet they will color everything crimson and for me that is fun.
I must go because my cat had decided it is time to play but know that I love you all and that beets love you too.
