Chioggia beets are one of my favorite of favorites...I love veggies that have a surprise inside. Chioggia's are a sweet, Italian heirloom variety. I picked these up at my local Farmers' Market.
First, I roasted some:
...along with shallots in olive oil and balsamic vinegar, topped with toasted walnuts and fresh thyme:
Then, I shredded some raw in a salad with carrots, celeriac and apple, and dressed it in flaxseed oil, fresh lemon juice, fresh orange juice and a splash of Bragg's Liquid Aminos:
Ciao for now. ;)
