any beetroot thoughts?
Mom and Pops gave us a vegetable box the other day and it had beetroots in it. I didn't really know what to do with them, although I am quite partial to a beetroot salad.
Anyways, I decided to go for borscht, inspired in part by reading the following poem by Heather Christle.
'Soup is One Form of Salt Water'
I am making borscht please do not laugh at me I seem to have ruined my soul the quality of television programming grows stronger all the time soon we will live in the ocean we will all return to the ocean my hands are bright pink like I have been applauding you for hours my love for you is louder than I know I saw a show last night there were four thousand brides left in Iceland I was laughing but it was not funny the brides looked embarrassed and cold I must not wash anywhere but a tide pool I must use starfish to scrub at my hands I am writing this to say I am not leaving you forever I am going to get better and then I’ll come home
I made the borscht with some onions, potatoes, carrots and beetroots, fried together first and then simmered with water. I also added caraway seeds, agave, red wine vinegar and salt and pepper.when it was all done I blended it.
It was super delish and bright red (I'm thinking it would be a good halloween dish).
It was too dark to take a photo though.... maybe tomorrow.
how do you cook beetroots?
(the poem is a bit sad isn't it? although my love for all of you lot is louder than I know)
