Beets on parade!

June 10, 2010

The months fly by: we’re hosting out third virtual veg of the month round up: BEETS!   And what beautiful dishes everyone made – they honor this ‘most intense of vegetables’.  If you missed the original ‘call for entries’ with more information on the vegetable and a quite long quote from the only author to give the beet a leading role in his novel you can hop over to have a look there when you are done drooling here!

Now that we are full into summer and the farmers market is overflowing with one beautiful vegetable after another its hard to pick just one to feature for July…  but we did it.  Our next round up will feature PEAS (any kind, and PEA SHOOTS as well if you like!) – and we will post it on July 10th, please submit by July 9th. You can submit by emailing a photo of your dish (600 pixels wide) and a link to your blog post/recip (or to flickr if you don’t have a blog) to Feel free to submit things you cooked before, you don’t have to make something specially for the VVotMC (though we love it if you do!)

And now, without further ado:

    Oh, wow — this post makes me feel all woobly inside. I do love the humble beet! All that passion stored up in one place… it’s almost not fair to the other veggies!

    Great round-up, guys!

    I still think my favorite is the beet cazunsei at al di la… to die for… but your beet chops are really looking good!

    Beet risotto!

    That’s way too seductive an idea to pass up. A plate of blood red, tender, toothsome rice. Beautiful.
