Beets are amazing! They are the one food that can turn everything and anything that comes into contact with them a bright purple color. My lunch today is a casserole of beets, pears, onions, wheat bean, cilantro, and red lentils. The beet juice has permeated everything and turned EVERYTHING purple. The combination of flavors is amazing. The beets and pears were a last minute substitution for carrots and celery and they made the dish all the much more interesting. What other veggies are capable of spreading their color in that same way?
