Keep It Seasonal: Just Beet It

Image

A great time of year to buy beets.

Each week, 1Aisle highlights seasonal produce that you can buy in bulk locally and use throughout the the week.  This week we highlight our favorite October root vegetable:  the beet!

According to this article from The World’s Healthiest Foods, the beet is a 2-in-1 vegetable.   At peak season (late summer, autumn), the root portion, when cooked, has great flavor, is soft and buttery, and is quite inexpensive.  The unheralded mineral-rich greens are also delicious and can be prepared just like their cousins spinach and Swiss chard.

Check out this article from Martha Stewart for four common preparation methods to prepare the beet root.  And, like always, send us your own tips and recipe ideas starring the beet!
