This one’s a winner y’ all! Let’s talk beets for a second: gorgeous colours, beautiful texture both when raw and cooked, slightly sweet, they really are lovely whichever way you decide to take: chips, soup, smoothie or combined with summery zucchini and manchego– you really can’t go wrong with these beauties. Especially when you keep them almost whole and make them the star of a tart tatin show. [READ MORE]
