Cooking Tips

Eat This First: This week, we made a few dishes to highlight beets with some new forms and techniques! Try a) roasting beets in round slices for the sandwich, b) cutting beets into "fry" shapes to go with the roasted carrots, and c) slicing beets and potatoes nice and thin for a rich, buttery, cheesy gratin!
