We’ve Got The Beets!

It’s beet season! This underestimated root vegetable gets a bad rap for being too earthy, and sometimes bitter… Unless you prepare them correctly and match them with the right flavors! There are endless ways to prepare beets AND their greens. Boil, roast, pickle, eat them raw, or even juice them. You can de-stem and chop beet greens to add to salads, soups, blend into pesto, steam, or sauté them as a side dish with olive oil with garlic!

Preparing Beets

Beets pair great with nutty flavors, citrus, and fresh herbs; so we’re using some of our favorite products to make these insanely delicious and innovative salads and hummus!

Check out these great new recipes, inspired by our star ingredient:
