FOOD // IN SEASON
The sun is shining, the grass is green and red, sweet beets are ripe for the picking! The perfect balance of sweet and earthy, crunchy and smooth, beets are the best way to see the summer out. Enjoy one of summer's best offerings with these recipes:
Teriyaki Tofu Beet Collard Wraps - It's the natural brightness and crunch of beets that's highlighted in this recipe. The naturally sweet, earthy flavor of the beet contrasts the wonderfully bitter collard wrap for the perfect light summer meal.
Quinoa with Roasted Beets and Pear - A more hearty side of beets comes out in this delectable dish. Wonderful hot or cold, make it for dinner and take the rest for lunch tomorrow.
Chocolate Beet Cake with Beet Cream Cheese Icing - Let's not forget the two best properties of beets now, okay? First, their natural sweetness makes them the perfect addition to any sweet treat and second, that beautifully rich color they carry makes everything they touch a perfect reddish purple. Need an example? This cake. It's the bomb.
