Now that we are selling our carrots and beets at the market, it’s time to sample the product! We’ve made a couple of tasty dishes with some of the product that didn’t meet the quality standards (funky looking carrots, small beets, etc.). After market we made a stir-fry that contained beets (gold and red), new potatoes, chard, green onions and fresh garlic (right from the ground!). It was super tasty. The potatoes were sweet-tasting and the beets tasted earthy (though we both contend the gold beets are a bit sweeter). We heated some oil and then threw the beets and potatoes into the wok for a few minutes. Then we added the other veggies and some salt and pepper. Yum!
The other dish we made is roasted root veggies, which included carrots, beets, onions, potatoes, celery, garlic, scapes and rosemary. This was mixed with olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. Smelled awesome, tasted delicious!!
