Sorry about the unexpected leave of absence! This past weekend really got away from me. However, I am back. Not only am I back but I am armed with beets!
I was really missing my favorite root vegetable and needed a little love. Plus I ran 18 miles yesterday and I needed some healthy fuel to revive my body. So after a quick trip to the store I was ready to take action in the kitchen. On the menu, wonton filled beets with a side salad.
The picture doesn’t do this dish any justice. It was really tasty.
First up, I boiled my beets for about 45 minutes. Just until they were soft and tender. I then threw them in a food processor with a little blue cheese, goat cheese, sea salt, and drizzle of olive oil.
I then filled each wonton wrapper (available at most grocery stores) with the mixture. Pinched the edges and began to fry in water and olive oil.
These puppies fried up pretty quickly. They were messy, but really good.
We sprinkled the wontons with some toasted pecans and parmesan cheese. With a simple spinach salad. Yum! Enjoy
