Recipes that include beets

Beet Chocolate Cupcakes

Friday, September 25, 2009

Remember when I was so so sad that I couldn’t eat the gorgeous Red Velvet Cake that Lon made (because I’m allergic to artificial food coloring)? Well, I still can’t eat Red Velvet Cake, but I’m still researching into a way to make it red without artificial food coloring. King Arthur is now selling some natural food coloring and one of them is red/pink, but the reviews warn that it’s only able to do pink, so it probably won’t be able to over-power the brown of the chocolate. There was some talk of beets, perhaps the original Red Velvet Cake (many different theories), but they seem to loose their color when cooked or mixed with baking powder or baking soda. So, no solution for making me a good Red Velvet Cake yet, but this beautiful Beet Cake at Straight From the Farm inspired me to make Beet Chocolate Cupcakes.

Cumin Scented Pickled Beets

Cumin Scented Pickled Beets 3

Beets have a natural sweetness to them that makes them perfect for pickling, becoming sweet and sour. It’s the perfect salad topper, relish for meat, or if you like tart stuff as much as I do, you’ll just snack on this all by itself. I used Chioggia beets, which have such pretty patterns, but feel free to use any beets you like. The cumin scent knocks this one out of the park for me, giving just a touch of complexity, but the process is uber easy.

Beet Carpaccio

Friday, March 6, 2009

I’ve seen this presentation at restaurants before (can’t remember where though) and it’s such a simple way to make an elegant looking beet salad. Here, I used golden beets but any color will work. You can cook the beets any way you prefer as long as it remains whole. Peel them and allow them to cool. Slice them very thinly with a mandolin. Arrange in any pattern you like.

Ahh, the three B’s: Bacon, Beets, and Brussels Sprouts, all stuff I love. This is one of my favorite recipes from 2008 so I decided to come back, make it again, and put up pictures that actually do this glorious dish some justice. ~ adjusted on 11/11/09

Beet, Goat Cheese, Honey Walnut, Mandarin Salad

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

Beets and Goat Cheese are one of those matches made in heaven, and therefore show up in salads quite often. You can make it even more orgasmic but adding mandarin oranges (canned) and honey covered walnuts. I don’t like writing recipes for salads ( I do for dressing though) because the amounts don’t need to be so exact. If you really love one ingredient, you can put more.

Asian Pear Beet Salad (with or without Feta)

Saturday, July 12, 2008

My friend Sheryl loves beets so I prepared some last time she came over. In a daring mood, I tried a pairing I had never seen or heard of before, beets with Asian pear. Hooray, it was a fabulous discovery and will forever be in my repertoire. I worked on a recipe and came up with a unique, refreshing, and eye-catching salad.
