Spicy roasted beets

Just when you thought I was done with beets….

After my beet greens post the other day I thought I was too! But then I thought two things

1. if you have beet greens, then you usually also have beets. So maybe I should say something about these lovely healthy root vegetables like how they are packed with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detox potential goodness. 

2. To top it all off I then saw this recipe in www.vegetariantimes.com and I could not resist doing post number two on beets and sharing. Besides even if you do not like beets, spicy roasted? Doesn’t that sound delish? Perhaps this recipe will tempt you to give them a try, they are in season after all…

Recipe:

2 bunches of beets, golden preferred (tops removed-but now you know what you can do with those babies right?), washed and quartered. You may also peel if you like but you would miss out on some good fiber

2 tbsp. coconut oil

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp paprika

1 pinch of chili powder

preheat over to 400 degrees. Toss all ingredients together and spread on baking sheet, Bake for 30-40 minutes or until beets are tender. Turn them over once. Salt pepper as desired and enjoy…yum!

The life and times of a flacker…

Yesterday, Donn and I explored my garden plants and here is what we found….amazing!

It all began one cool day a few months ago as I was cleaning up my kitchen and found a container of sample flackers that was ? days or months old. Since I am a composter, I figured why throw them away, some critter out there may be hungry for a flacker and so I threw the whole box into the garden. It rained for a few days after that and when the sun finally came out, behold the flackers were sprouting in my garden!!
