Seeing Red


Do you have a favorite vegetable? I do, you guessed it Beets. While shopping at the Farmer's Market for the perfect bunch I caught sight these. I just might have to go back for another colorful bunch.

Beetroots are great addition to aussie hamburgers.

I love beets in summer, the perfect food in salads, soups, sandwiches...oh anything! Gorgeous ones here.

Tomatoes :))
When they are more mature, I will share the garden this year.
A hug.

Really nice!

Kate said...

I love them, too. Always buy a bunch, cook them and then eat them like apples. The greens are fantastic when sauteed.

I love beets, too.
Especially roasted!
Nice shot.

Beets seem to be a vegetable people either love or hate. Personally I like them a lot. :)

Halcyon said...

I've never cared for them. But they look nice in photos. :)

we grew them in our family garden and pickled them ourselves. i ate too many then and can't even THINK about touching them, now.

i've never been a huge fan...mostly i'd have them when we'd go to my grandparents to eat so i haven't had one in a very long time! i guess my fave veg would be corn on the cob but i really like a lot of vegetables!

I think mine is Brussels Sprouts.

Carrots forever, but your beets look really good in this picture!

They sure look pretty!

Love beets! It's a fine summer shot.

Beets are good and they beat some other stuff! When I have to eat the other stuff I try to stay upbeat but it's hard. :)

Love beets but really love tomatoes right off the plant with a bit of olive oil & balsamic & basil & feta! ;-)

Not a huge fan but for these I might make an effort with a little vinaigrette and chives...

Carola Bartz said...

I am not a big fan of beets, but I love this photo.

Kathy said...

Your photo is really nice but it won't change my mind. I absolutely detest beets. I'm a broccoliholic myself, although my favorite summertime veggie is tomatoes! Imagine how thrilled I was to find a vendor at our local farmers market who has a late summer/early crop of tomatoes and she expects to have these gems until the first frost!

I have never seen 'beets' before !

I adore beets with their earthy taste, roasted and popped into a salad.

My favorite vegetable? right now it is juicy tomatoes (made into BLTs!)

Bises,

Beets and beet greens, doesn't get much better than that!

JM said...

Nice colours!

I have a friend who always says, when invited to dinner, "Just remember that I don't eat beets." How likely is it that I am going to serve him beets?
