What’s a mom to do when the only other beet-lover in the family moves out? Sweet Miss was home for the weekend, and I sent her home with a few freshly picked beets, but I failed to serve up some roasted beet salad or other treats while she was here.
It’s disheartening to make a dish that the rest of the family refuses to eat. The MR and Baby Girl are confirmed beet-haters. It just takes the joy out of the situation when I eat beets around them.
That’s when I came up with a fabulous idea. Everyone’s on their own for breakfast. Why not eat beets in the morning? No one complains or turns up their nose, and I can eat them to my heart’s content.
I toasted some leftover French bread, spread on some fresh cheese, and added sliced, roasted beets. Then I topped it with some local honey and a sprinkle of dried thyme from our herb garden.
Simple foods combined for a satisfying breakfast.
