A good tip when preparing any part of the beet (root, stem, or greens) is to separate the plant pieces as soon as you get home. The greens and stems will tend to wither faster when still attached but hold up well when stored separately. You can also revive soft-ish beet stems by placing them upright in a cup with an inch or so of water to soak up. (Similar to celery.) Putting this unconventional ingredient to good use is an awesome way to implement scrap cooking! We can really make the most of our produce when we eat all it. If you want a challenge see how you can bring beets into your improvisational cooking practice! You got this 😀
This recipe is perfect for whenever hummus is not available or anytime you’re hungry! It pairs well with anything savory, the natural sweetness of the beet is a great contrast. We’re using up parts of your produce that might otherwise be composted which in my opinion always makes things taste better.
Ideas for what to spread this on?
Let me know if you give this a try! #closedloopcooking
