The Fresh Beet is long overdue for another beet recipe. More beets please!
I love how beets let you know exactly where they’ve been…
Don’t like beets? Please try them this way before casting them aside for good. The oranges really bring out the sweetness of the beets here, and the goat cheese adds a nice savory flavor to it all.
