Roasted Beets with Leftovers

Friday, August 9th, 2013

Had some beets in the refrigerator that weren’t getting any fresher and I had to cook them last night. Wrapping them in foil and roasting in a 375 degree oven for 1.5 hours did the trick. But now what? What else was in the fridge? Cucumbers and green beens from our garden and some spinach leftover in a bag and a couple of hard boiled eggs. And what’s that? Some cheese! It’s a meal.

Let the beets cool then peal and slice. Pour some balsamic vinegar in a pan and reduce. Drizzle thickened vinegar over the beets and a pepper ranch dressing over the egg and cucumber. Colorful, crispy and fresh.

If only there were some ice cream leftover in the freezer.

    Now you are making a dish I can eat!

    1. I guess I forgot to mention that the beans were cooked in bacon fat. But steaming them will work also.

  2. I relish, cause I found just what I was taking a look for.
    You’ve ended my four day lengthy hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great day.
