Back to the basics with my blog, our food, life in general, and Enjoying this Journey...

When I was pregnant with Bugsy, I had an unfortunate experience with beets.

I made a chocolate beet cake {obviously this was way before I changed my foodstuffs}. The entire time it cooked, all I could smell was earth. While it cooled? All I could smell was earth. When I sliced it? Earth. I could not bring myself to try it. The Mister thought it was the best. cake. ever. The next day, he insisted I try it, I did… and nearly knocked him over as I ran to spit it out. Suffice to say, I have not eaten or cooked a red beet since.

But considering I have challenged myself to try so many new foods; I decided to give the lighter, less offensive looking beet a try. Maybe I will work up enough gusto to try a red beet. But for now?

Baby steps with the golden beets.

Roasted Golden Beet Salad
I digress.

Since this was my first time cooking golden beets, I thought I’d keep it simple. Simple has proven to be the best approach in my kitchen!

This salad is delicious and satisfying. I served it with a turmeric garlic burger and caramelized onions. Mmf.
