beet it, originally uploaded by Darwin Bell.

As Mark Bittman says " I love beets." Usually, I just throw a a little butter on roasted beats. But tonight, I am going to try this.

A bit more adventuresome is a dressing of walnuts, garlic and fresh orange juice. Note that all of these have some bitterness or acidity, which counter the sweetness of beets beautifully. To tame the garlic, I cook it quickly, along with the walnuts; toasting always makes nuts nuttier. This makes the purée smoother tasting, as well.

Eat well, my friends.
