I went to the grocery store this morning and came home with two new vegetables to try: fresh beets, and kale. I'll post when I use them. I'm thinking I'll roast the beets with some parsnips and sweet potatoes; ever since the Winter Vegetable Extravaganza, parsnips have become a staple in my house, right after carrots on the grocery list. And I'm planning to make kale chips, where you toss them with olive oil and seasonings and bake them. Or maybe add the kale to a bean dip, with garbanzo beans or cannolini. Kale's supposed to be good in soup, too, but I have not been the soup-making-freak this winter that I usually am in cold weather.
Here are the two new produce experiments. The paper towell is to keep the beets, on the right, from staining the counter.
Check this site out: 365 Days of Kale. I found it on Green Lite Bites in a post Roni wrote about kale. Lots of info about my new veggie!
I also bought cabbage, celery, carrot chips and cilantro. And some things that didn't start with "C", too.
