Beets…ya either love’m or hate’m. Actually, I don’t know if that’s true or not but it seems to be the word on the mean Paleo veggie streets these days. Given the name of this blog– Blonde Beet Nirvana– my alliance falls in the first camp. I am definitely Team Beet!
My husband thinks they taste like a handful of dirt. I can’t get enough of their sweet yet still savory flavor! That being said, beets certainly do pack a pungent punch, so I tend to think they do best when they’re the focal ingredient.
Ironically, I combined these beet fries with black truffle oil, another alpha ingredient. And guess what? Turns out these two ingredients CAN exist in holy fry matrimony!
This is probably the most philosophical I’ve gotten about produce, btw.
Besides being just so delicious (in my opinion), beets are winners in the nutrition department too. This vegetable is quite the superfood! According to this source, beets are a great source of fiber, copper, potassium, and maganese. They also contain phosphorous, iron, plus– vitamins B and C. In addition, beets have shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory and detoxification properties!
So here’s how I make these delectable beet fries…
Side note– while this does not fall under Paleo, adding a bit of organic goat’s cheese after baking the fries is a tasty accoutrement! Also optional but really yummy– crush up some pistachios and crumble on top!
