Root Veggies! Don’t Ya Just ♥ Them? ;-)
I SURE DO!!! 😉
And here are some of my fav ways to prepare and serve these oh,so yummy “gems” from the fall harvest!
Sam’s Famous Carrot Cake with My (NOT Too Sweet) Cream Cheese Icing
My favorite cake, no contest!
Just add dark rye bread and you’re good to go! 😉
One of my fav slow cooker recipes from the Groovy Green Kitchen I.
I make this one a lot. Quick to prepare, hearty and delicious.
And, it includes: onions, garlic and potatoes: all fav rooties! 🙂

A delish and elegant salad; brimming with flavor!
A twist on traditional lasagna, again from the slow cooker. Hearty and delish!

How I LOVE Beets, Let Me Count the Ways! ;-)
I ♥ beets sooooo much! 😉
I think beets are one of the most underrated vegetables in terms of versatility and taste.
Not to mention their health benefits, which are significant too and in a number of ways. It’s not just vitamin C that you’re getting in a serving of beets! You can read about some of the many nutritional pluses of eating beets and beet greens here.
Tonight I’m making a beet pesto with pasta recipe for the first time. Sounds and looks so yummy. It’s a recipe that I found recently in Alive Magazine. I also make a variety of beet salads on a regular basis and of course, my fav soup of all time:
Veggie Beet Borscht (click for the recipe).
Do you like beets and what’s your fav recipe to make with them?
Happy Cooking! :)
