While the meat case will certainly catch your eye, certainly don't forget about our fabulous selection of fresh and local fruits and veggies! Which brings us to the topic of the day: Beets! Beets with their silky deep purple juice and versatile place on your table! We're not physicians here, but we've heard that beets also have some pretty spectacular health benefits. At the very least, beets can offer a refreshing complement to a meat-laden dinner or fill out a light summer meal.
Here are a few of our favorite beet recipes, and we'd also love to hear what all of you do with beets!
- Summer Beet Soup--a variation on our favorite Polish borscht
- Avocado, Chia, and Beet Salad--can't think of a healthier, yummier combination!
- Beet, Spinach, and Goat Cheese Risotto-- try with farro or pick up the traditional arborio here!
- Blood Orange and Beet Juice-- blood orange sweet potato, carrots, and beets in a juice? You'll be blown away.
So, come on down to Stachowski's and grab a few beets for some easy summer recipes!
