Beet, drink, and be merry!

Fresh & Local

You are what you beet! The root vegetable is bountiful at the market and we have five ways to prepare them.

  1. Raw. Shave them thin and turn beets into a slaw salad.
  2. Roasted. Add green onion, feta cheese, and a spritz of lemon juice for a tasty side dish.
  3. Juiced. Add apple and parsley for a nutritious and delicious beet juice.
  4. Hummus. Create a colorful and healthy dip using beets. Here’s an example!
  5. Pickled. Grab them now and enjoy them later with pickling beets.
