5 or 6 red beets
a handful of pine nuts
Quailcroft soft goat cheese
salt/pepper/pinch of cayenne
I love beets so much because there is zero waste in our house. We eat the greens. The dog goes ape-shit over the peels (we call them beety bones). We pour the water we baked/steamed them in in our juice (fantastic with orange/carrot juice). All gone.
Heat oven to 350.
Place beets (unpeeled)in a pyrex bowl with lid. Put a little water in the bowl. Bake for 1 hour or until beets are soft.
Peel beets and slice. Season with salt, pepper, pinch of cayenne & lemon zest.
Toss in olive oil and lemon juice.
Briefly roast pine nuts in cast iron pan. Toss in salad.
Crumble in goat cheese.
The salad is better the next day.
