As a child I absolutely hated beetroot. I think it is because in the late 70’s, early 80’s we just got that really terrible beetroot “salad” that was more vinegar and sugar than anything else! But when I met my wife, who happens to be Polish (beetroot is a staple for those of you who don’t know…and sometime down the line I will be posting a Polish Beetroot Soup – BEST EVER!), and now I am hooked.
I love the real earthy, robust flavour of beetroot…it can break through any flavour! Coupled with a nice cheese and some greens…WOW!
I like to serve this as a light lunch on a summers day with some sourdough bread.
