Lovely Beets, No Waste


Just picked some beautiful beets ready for my not so beautiful cooking skills (I cook with love but I’m still having plenty of less-than-successful dishes).

Beetroot salad


Roast beetroot, peeled and chopped

Baby spinach and rocket


Low fat fetta

Olive oil and red wine vinegar dressing

Served with some lamb chops and boiled potatoes. Yum!

Risotto with beet greens


Chopped leeks – sautéed until tender

Add 2 cups Arborio rice

Stir in 1/4 cup white wine

Add 3 cups chopped beet greens

Add 5 cups of chicken broth 1/2 a cup at a time, stirring in between each move in candy crush saga (or whatever you’re doing to entertain yourself for the next 25 mins)

Stir in 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, some black pepper and some lemon juice

Don’t tell your partner they’re eating beet greens or that it’s a vegetarian dish – just let them eat away in ignorant bliss 🙂
