Photo #1: Unadorned, organic, and visually dramatic, the washed beets . . . draining on paper towels.
Photo #2: Roasted and sliced, the beets are joined by crisp greens, radish matchsticks, sweet onions, chevre, medium-cooked eggs and pine nuts. The salad was later drizzled with a sweet and tangy homemade strawberry balsamic vinaigrette. The dressing looked a lot like chocolate syrup in the photos, so I didn't want to scare anyone with those pics, but it was seriously delicious . . . and dark.
Photo #3: A mouthwatering tangle of sauteed beet greens, stems and all, piled on top of a thick slice of buttered Italian bread. This is the food I love.
Buy some beets. Roast them and keep them in the fridge all week.
