DON'T RAISE A JERK
IF YOU CAN'T BEET THEM, ENJOY THEM!
If someone offered me beets two years ago I would gag, spit, twirl and make a face anyone would want to slap, and today I can't get enough of them! Not only are they incredibly healthy, they're easy to prepare. Here's what we love to do...
1.) Pre-heat oven to 350
2.) Wash beets and cut off stems but do NOT peel
3.) Place beets and asparagus on a cookie tray and sprinkle with olive oil. With your hands, roll veggies in oil to give them a good soaking then top with salt and pepper and pop in the oven for 45 minutes. They'll come out shrunk, slightly crispy and looking as ugly as Gorbachev, but BOY are they good!
4.) To add a yummy twist to the beets, we'll place them in a bowl with fresh grated blue cheese and mix it all up, the heat from the beets melts the cheese and is just divine!!
